Serene Scenery Sunday

Tail wags, dear readers!  It's me - Stormy.  If you remember yesterday, I mentioned that before I saw the big truck pull up in front of the house, I was doodling around the front yard with Mom.  You know - taking my time, walking around, checking everything out - just enjoying a beautiful Fall day.  I saw something that I thought you all would like to see for Serene Scenery Sunday.

I was over by the Mums...

"Hey!  What's that?!?"

...when something caught my eye. Mom tried to figure out what I was looking at, and once she did, we ran to get the Nikon so we could get a good shot to show you.  Fortunately, I have trained her to be quick - and our little visitor was amenable to posing.  Check her out:

Isn't she beautiful? We're right on the migration route for the Monarch Butterfly, so we see a good number of them in the Fall.

This one seemed very much at home on our Mums!

And not at all afraid of our mum! (Ha roo roo roo!)

It is starting to get mighty chilly in the mornings, so she better hurry on down to Mexico to stay warm!  I think Bart is heading that way soon, too; they might want to travel together!

I hope our Monarch pix helped you feel serene!  Have a lovely Sunday!

Tail wags,
Storms

  13. Oh yes, I feel very serene now. There was a big moth in mum and dad's bedroom last night so I had to chase it around, but it escaped outside eventually. I was a bit disappointed.
