We have a butterfly bush in our back yard that, of course, I didn't know was there to begin with. But, this point in the summer is apparently when the monarch butterflies come from Mexico and pass through our part of the country. The local science center has a special monarch exhibit, but we don't really need to visit it yet. We have our own!
I had been meaning to take some pictures of the butterflies for a few days now, and thankfully, I finally did before the butterflies leave for the year. The way my time has flown these days, I would not have been a surprise that I'd have missed my chance.
