~smile~ I agree; sometimes even the most everyday discoveries can be thrilling.

The only reason I added "until next time" was the thought that you may discover something injured and decide to intervene.

BTW, it is great to relate to others here on the forum that share the thrill attracting wildlife to the yard.

butterfly thanks for sharing!

Yes, we have been chasing the flutterbies. Thank you for posting here, Equilibrium!! You are the best. The video isn't the greatest, but you get to see SOME of what we saw.

Thanks, Equilibrium.

I did see it at some point (I'm assuming *after* I typed the above), but it was worth viewing again.

Thank you so much for your time and trouble.

I know what you mean; it seems impossible to capture on video what we see with our eyes, hearts, and minds.

I did that with the dragonflies and barn swallows I saw over the summer...at least you get a FEEL for what it was like.

In the past week or so, I've bee watching the myriad of pollinators swarming around my asters. I've taken a few pictures, but they don't do it justice. I should take a video which may give a bit more of the effect. Among the bees, flies, and sulfur butterflies, I spotted a monarch...and today, I realized there were TWO (each at a different aster 'bush'). This is the first I've seen more than I lone monarch. I'm planning to do a yearly census! ~wink~ I'm hoping to see an increase in all of the butterfly species. I counted at least half a dozen yellow (sulfurs, I think).

We have been seeing a HUGE number of monarchs flying through as well as large numbers of buckeyes and red admirals. We still find monarch caterpillars and even found 2 monarch eggs on a milkweed today. The season is apparently not over and is going to be a long one! This has been a great season for monarchs and leps in general around here!
