Of Kings and Queens

Well, that’s what monarchs are, right, kings and queens?  I took some pictures of the “king” or “queen” of the butterflies the other day – I say this because I have no idea whether it was a girl or a boy (although I did witness what I assume was some butterfly hanky-panky going on, I assume there was actually one of each.  I don’t think you are interested in the picture of that!  Maybe you are?) Anyway…

I am just loving the butterfly bushes this summer for all the opportunities it has presented me.

This one was actually taken on the near-by rasberry bush.  I just love those polka-dotted bodies!

I’d never noticed those furry, fluffy backs before.  It reminded me of a phrase my daughters have been repeating ad infinitum since they saw “Despicable Me” this summer:

Thank you, your majesty, for having this little photo session with me!

Oh and one more shot of a very sweet monarch that I couldn’t help but share:
