I was glad to get a lot of photos of these this summer. Some summers they are just not that many of them to see. I like the shot.

I like them both - the monarch and the thistle. Lovely image.

I'd sure like to see some butterflies about now too. It's been a long cold winter so far.

I often wonder how you get these butterflies to sit still long enough to take their photo. You take some of the finest butterfly photos, Rose.
