It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a monarch butterfly, but I found one in our yard Saturday afternoon.  Unfortunately, it had fallen victim to the lawnmower (or possibly the heat – Saturday was pretty darn warm).

Seymour was lucky enough to see it alive Saturday morning, and I saw another one later in the afternoon.  I remember seeing tons of these guys as a kid, and their caterpillars, too, but there was a lot more milkweed around back then.

It’s a shame there aren’t more of these around for my kids to enjoy the way I did.
