Max Brantley of the Arkansas Times blog asked readers if anyone had some photos of migrating monarch butterflies to share. It just so happened that I had been stalking the critters with my SLR as they visited the monster zinnias in our front yard Saturday, so I offered some pics up to Max. He used one here and offered a link to this blog, so here are a few more shots for visiting Times readers and my regular crew.
I hope these guys moved on ahead of last night's cold front. The weekend was certainly perfect weather for flowers, butterflies, and bicyclists!
