OK… you all know that we’ve not long returned from the US of A. However, how many of you can say you ticked something off your life’s wish-list on a quick trip to a new horizon? I really don’t like the bucket list carry-on… but there are things that I would love to do or see before it’s time for me to move on. One such desire was to see a butterfly. Note, I say was… because we did see that butterfly! Not only did we see that butterfly but we also saw a few others too.
But… back to that butterfly. You may ask what that butterfly may be. Simple… the monarch of monarchs… or the king of kings of American butterflies. I mentioned in an earlier post that the US of A wasn’t really on my radar… then, I suppose saying the monarch butterfly being on the radar would be a paradox. Indeed… but it shows, sometimes little moments are long anticipated… and when they happen, the thrill can never be taken away!
So… to think, last Monday we spotted this lad in Brooklyn, New York… and now it’s just a memory. Yes, a memory to share on Irene’s Sunshine Macro Monday
NOTE: Again, just a reminder – I’ll place the ping-back link as soon as Irene does today’s challenge post… done!
