Monarch Butterfly, Where Art Thou?

Laguna Beach: One Lone ButterflyYes somewhere in all those wild flowers that grace the front of our library is a lone Monarch Butterfly. 6 decades back we would have thousands* of these butterflys in our neighborhood in Burbank. Now we freak out if we see one. Actually there were three Monarchs but only one would settle down for a photo-op.

Yes I know you can't see the Monarch but I can. The Monarch is just below and to the right of the white daisy in the upper center of the photo.

*Yes thousands. One friend had probably that many popping out of their shells from the three or four trees in their backyard. It was really something and I'm now glad I was around to see it.
