Butterflies Are Beautiful

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.

Enjoy the following autumn colors.  Beauty is so fleeting on earth.
