This fall the butterflies finally arrived. They really love the Profusion zinnias that I grow in my yard. While photographing dragonflies, I thought I finally saw my first Monarch, but it turned out to be a Viceroy, a butterfly that mimics the Monarch. My first Monarch were a couple of days later when two visited the milkweed in my yard and a few of the coneflowers.
After the Coondog Cemetery was decorated for the Labor Day Celebration, several were attracted to the silk flowers.
