The day he left we had a gorgeous "first light" show. I actually enjoy first lights more than the actual sunrise. Clicking on photos enlarges them.
Most of the Monarchs have fled but this poor butterfly seems hopelessly stuck on a branch that had fallen on my deck in the cold and wet rainy weather we've been having all week - including even today. I hope it soon warms up enough for this insect to make it further south.
Walking in the Behnke Woods we found these lovely fungi.
