We are in the path of the Painted Lady Butterfly migration and there are butterflies everywhere. I don't know how long they will be here, but they're just beautiful and it's like a fairyland. We may get our first frost/freeze or even some snow on Monday, so this is the perfect send off to summer.

They seem to be enjoying my yard and especially like the Russian Sage plants. The plants were just loaded with them until I walked up to take a picture and most of them flew off.

I got some nice shots last weekend on a shrub in the back yard, too! Monarch, Painted Lady, and Common Buckeye.... hoping to get a better shot of the Buckeye if there are some out there this weekend...

Great pics, Debi. There are still some hanging around this morning, but I don't think they will be here past tomorrow as the weather will take a drastic turn.
