Your photographs of the monarch butterflies are excellent. I haven't seen any where I live this year. I miss that so especially good to get a glimpse of yours.

I like the butterfly much better than the cricket :)

Not from a photographic standpoint, but I just think of how much crickets annoy me - ha!

Lovely shots. Thanks for stopping by and your comments. It has been a great week getting to know my long lost sister. It is amazing, but it seems like we have always known each other and have so much in common.
