Today, I spotted a monarch butterfly flitting amidst the coneflowers. It was beautiful and it stayed for some time before flying away. Here are some portraits of the lovely butterfly, that fluttered by until it fluttered away.

|Stop, smell the flowers
look for the nectar within
|Stretch colorful wings
easterly and westerly
not being a flutterby
a beautful lull
|Soon I will be gone
to explore other gardens

This. Is. Cool
Beautiful photos! I love butterflies; actually, I’m a bit like a butterfly, flitting from one adventure to the next. Thank you for such an interesting post.
You got some nice captures here. There was a swallowtail butterfly fluttering amongst my day lilies the other day but I couldn't get there in time. It's such a thrill to be able to interact with a butterfly in this way.
So cool that you got to share some quality moment with a Monarch! With photos, to boot!
Really col photos…and I enjoyed the haiku verses also.
