Monarch Butterfly

This afternoon I saw a monarch butterfly! (I'm pretty sure it's a monarch, rather than the other kind that I confuse with monarchs sometimes.) It was pretty skittish, but eventually settled. I got one reasonably close photo:

then crept closer. I was about to get a fabulously close photo when... a car drove down the lane and startled it. I decided against waiting for it to settle again. (I waited a bit, just in case, but didn't wait too long.)

Happy butterfly day to you!
