I feel sad that our later generations might not ever see these beautiful creatures except in some “Butterfly House.” Over 50 years ago butterflies were plentiful, this is no longer the case.
There are numerous reasons why this has happened. Besides the overuse of pesticides and herbicides in our culture, most of our fields are now parking lots just like the song.
Enjoy these lovely Monarchs, it’s about time for their migration in Michigan. They claim they fly through the summer but I have usually seen them in late summer in my area.
Not sure what tiny butterfly was sitting on my doorbell.
No local pubs for this gal, though there are many nearby.
Enjoy the locals that take flight around here though.
Good Morning from Mill Pond in Tecumseh, home of the Tecumseh Paddling Company.
Two birthday Butterflies greeted me yesterday.
There was one on my window and I saw it when I first opened the window to greet the day. When I went outside to get a better shot, it was gone.
Later I saw a Monarch sunning on my deck!
Butterflies are symbols of change. I have been seeing many butterflies the last few days before my foreclosure sale that is about to take place. After that, my life will really change. I lose my home and have to start all over again.
I still don’t know where I’m going but have an idea. I’ve resolved myself to a small apartment for now so I can just relax for a while. If I like it, I’ll stay, if I want to move on, I will do so. Butterflies can do this.
