It is migration time in Texas. The Monarch Butterflies are passing through. I went to the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens and the Dallas Arboretum and was lucky enough to stand among hundreds of butterflies.
As I zoomed in to get pictures of the monarchs I felt overwhelmed by their beauty and amazed by the journey they were undertaking.
Lucky you, Tree. Beautiful photos! (For some reason I thought you live in other states.) 😉 Helen
I live in Texas…and yes so lucky to see these beautiful creatures up close!
Brilliant photos of the butterflies, Tree. You captured them nice and sharp as they are flitting here and there. They are definitely very beautiful. Looks like they are in their element, flying round and round those green leaves 🙂
Thank you Mabel….I could have stood there for hours watching them and taking pictures. They are amazing creatures!!
Butterflies are never dull to watch. They have different colours and patterns on their wings. However, I wish they loved us humans more and fly around us more often!
Wow – I’m sure it was spectacular to see so many butterflies in one area!
It truly was Joan!
Wow!! I love these butterfly images, Tree. I have to remember to visit there next year to experience… 🙂
It is a wonderful experience!
You’ll have to let me know if you are in the area!
We go Dallas at least once a year, haven’t visited the Arboretum though 🙂 Will be happy to let you know next time. 🙂
Awesome! The Dallas Arboretum is very nice. We plan to go again this year when the Christmas lights go up.
