Amy's Garden, Bartlett Pond, White Horse Beach, Manomet, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA

I'm not sure if this monarch butterfly is spending the summer with us or just passing through on the long journey south but, it sure does like Amy's garden. Monarchs are apparently the only butterfly that make an annual migration similar to birds.

So too, this fritillary enjoys the abundant food sources. (I think it's a fritillary but, I'm not really very knowledgeable about lepidoptera).

We're still enjoying long warm summer days here in New England but, sunrise is now one minute later and sunset is one minute earlier each day. The steady march to the equinox moves on.

Moisture beads after a summer  thunderstorm.

Sunset after the thunderstorm has passed. There sure is a lot of beauty on this planet. I hope I get to stay for a while longer.
