The shadows of monarch butterflies hovering over our backyard ivy is one of the wonders of the low October sun and the reflections caught in the window. Given that the monarchs will only be here for about a week, each shadow, if I am fortunate to see it, is a signal for me to grab my camera and head outside. It helps that the monarchs are triple the size of painted ladies or cabbage white butterflies, the two most common fliers in the backyard. I call this time of year, “monarch madness.”monarch4monarch3
