Monarchs by the thousands visit our beaches every fall to fuel up on Golden Rods. When they cluster on them the Golden Rods become orange gladioli! Spectacular to see! / Maurice

You capture an incredible nature scene in this Haiku, Milton, nothing better than hued butterflies following you on the road and adding a sense of joy, freedom, and beauty to the scenery.
