Butterfly Weather

A red admiral butterfly on milkweed flowers in the garden in Jester Park, Iowa, July 4, 2018.

I was following a flighty monarch butterfly around the garden when I saw the red admiral butterfly. Not to be outdone, the monarch landed on a milkweed plant close by.

The elder elk was resting in the grass next to the observation deck. He didn’t share the festive and energetic mood of the butterflies.
