Back on August 7, a couple chrysalises on our house erupted. One monarch butterfly already had flown the coop by the time I noticed, but another, who I dubbed Monique, hung around for awhile.
Yesterday I looked out my front door and saw some fluttering around our butterfly plant. It was a monarch! I grabbed my Nikon D700, attached the Nikon 70-200mm lens, and stood in the doorway snapping pix.
Could it be that Monique had returned for a visit? Perhaps she had gotten homesick during her travels.
Whatever the reason, I hope we get to see her more often. She’s welcome to belly up to the Butterfly Buffet any time!
