The Year 2021 will be Good, Very Good

Our Blog’s Media Library of hundreds of images? I love moving through it. Re-meeting images that remind of exhilarating moments some time ago.

This one, of a pair of Eastern Black Swallowtail butterflies jumped out at me this morning. I found them, motionless they were, some 2 foot above ground, in the Butterflies & Blooms Briar Patch Habitat I in Eatonton, Georgia. She, her dorsal surface in full view, closest to us, and he, wings closed, below her. They are procreating. Those of you who got to see their offspring, how fortunate you have been.

2020’s quickly coming to its end, and this image, impresses me that 2021 will be Good, Very Good.

Monarchs That Bring Joy!

We’re near the end of February here in middle Georgia, U.S.A.. Some days hit 60 degrees Fahrenheit, others struggle to reach 49 degrees. I’ve not seen a Monarch butterfly since very early November 2019.

Working through our wingedbeauty.com Media Library and I stopped here, at this enchanting image of a female Monarch, in our 303 Garden (our own yard). She has stopped to deposit eggs on our Milkweed (Asclepias  spp).

Just another image for me? No. No. No. What you’re seeing made me smile, instantly. Joy to my heart, seeing Monarchs, as I did  back in Brooklyn, New York, back then. She striving to insure that the next generation of Monarchs ecloses, whether it be then in East Flatbush section of Brooklyn or now, in beautiful Eatonton, Georgia.

Joy! is always good medicine. Monarchs bring Joy!
