Yesterday morning in the garden I spotted this Monarch butterfly happily skipping along the bright purple blooms of Salvia ‘Mystic Spires’. Considering the day started off with temps in the upper 40’s I was a bit surprised to see this visitor so late in the season. Of course I didn’t have my camera with me so I had to capture this winged beauty with my cell phone. It took me several shots before I was able to get a decent one of his gorgeous wings. Unfortunately he wouldn’t spread them open to give me a better angle. Considering I didn’t see too many of these this past summer it was a nice way to start the day! 🙂
