SOLD Greeting card – May 25, 2010 to my dear friend Blair, thank you Blair! I hadn’t uploaded this more than a few minutes and it sold, that is so special to me!

This is May 25, 2010 and I spotted this Monarch butterfly flitting around the flowers today. Actually there were two or three, but this one, the least pretty of them, I guess from it’s long journey and high winds today has some wear and tear on it’s wings.
But it was beautiful enough for me to wait in earnest to land somewhere for some photos. I wasn’t disappointed, although this is on a Dandelion in the grass, it’s the best shot I could get.

    Monarchs & Hummingbirds in May…….what will the summer bring I wonder?
    I’m delighted you’ve sold this early Bright Wings of Summer as a card.

  • we were very surprised, we saw the hummingbirds and the Monarch as we sat outside for supper yesterday, of course I went and grabbed my camera! The Milkweeds in my gardens are still green, no flowers yet, I hope it finds food
