A Monarch butterfly on a lantana bloom. Before long, the Monarchs will begin their southward migration to Mexico. I learned recently that Monarchs born in late summer have a much longer lifespan (up to 8 months) than those born earlier, whose lifespan is only 2-6 weeks. Either way, that's a very short life. I hope they enjoy their time on earth.
