Last monarch of the season

Last Monarch of the Season
What an incredible day, mixing the warmth of summer with the colors of a sunny day in October. Given the nasty, cold weather we had until a few days ago, I thought I had long since seen my last monarch butterfly of the season, but no -- this splendid creature seems to have passed up the last bus south. It lingered on, and its reward was to have paradise (Tiedeman's Pond, Middleton) all to itself.
