Wow, that must be a lot of butterflies to make a 100 mile wide radar return.

Ta ra 'wan,

Monday afternoon and Tuesday while I was out and about there were Painted Lady butterflies around pretty much everywhere I went.

This morning, I didn't see a single one during my morning walk or on the run to the grocery store.

Same here, Psihala! I've been loving the butterflies, but I didn't see a single one today (other than a wing on the sidewalk).

I guess they've all moved on. Usually I see at least a Monarch during the summer, but I haven't seen one of those this year either.

I saw a couple today still. But with snow on the way for Monday, they better move out pretty quick.

Yay Ryda!

-- and also neat butterflies. Or, I suppose, possibly messy but fascinating butterflies.

Hey, everyone! I'm hanging in there. It's been a crappy year, but I'm alive.
