Orange and black

I am wearing Monarch colors.

You are so magical! This one deserves a place in a frame and on a wall(preferably my wall!)

Have a beautiful week.

Love, Vikki.

That's a great pose - I think the Monarchs are well and gone from here. Only a few lazy (or not so lazy) bees hanging on. Next week they will all be gone.

Mary said...

You caught the Monarch floating!!!!

Sherry, you are incredible. So darn blessed.

Wonderful photo!!
I am amazed at the Monarch butterflies everywhere. In New Zealand they needed Swanplant to survive, & were condidered quite rare!

Dear Vikki,
Send me an e-mail and I will pop this photo off to you!
I liked it too. LOL

Dear Chris,
I still am seeing newly emerged ones like this one.
I watch them basking in the mornings. It is cool around here 48-49 degrees at 8am. As the sun comes up over the neighbor's trees I watch as the Monarchs begin to feed. Aways so lovely against the blue morning sky.
No frost here yet. I see the bees in the afternoons.
I know I will miss all the bugs come frost.

Dear Mary,
This darling was followering me! I had been watching him feed and as I walked towards the driveway to go walking around the neighborhood, he came with.
I love the bugs and I think they do get to know me. I know the bees do.
I hope the butterflies know me as friend.

Dear Marmee,
I posted this picture on Walking In Beauty too. I know many Corner visiters do not come walking and I wanted to share this Monarch.
Thanks for walking with.

Q said...

Dear Meggie,
I had read there were Monarchs in New Zealand! Swanplant sounds lovely...I love that.
I also have been reading about all the fantastic birds in your country. I would love to come and visit and do many walk abouts. I think I would need 6 months at main goal would be see you, of course, and the Fairy Penguins also known as Blue Penguins.
Oh my, they are darling.

Beautiful capture Sherry....absolutely magical.....

Lisa at Greenbow said...

What a capture! I might have to try to paint this one. If you don't mind of course.

Q said...

Dear Cheryl,
The Monarchs are still active in my gardens. I will miss them.
I really do like this picture. I might have to print it out.

Q said...

Dear Lisa,
I would be honored! I so love your paintings.
I shall be checking your Artsy Endeavors!
Thanks again for the Tennessee Warbler id. A very cute bird.

This is so beautiful, Sherry! I traipsed after a Monarch today and finally managed to get one photo from a distance. They seem to be constantly floating about--I don't know how you captured this fantastic picture!

Q said...

Dear Rose,
I know what you mean! I was lucky to have turned at just the right moment! I find the Monarchs are slow in the mornings!
Getting a picture is always exciting.
Happy Monarchs,
