I Saved A Monarch Today


Today was overcast but not cool.
The guys in the shop had the overhead doors open.
They keep a huge fan in the doorway.
I usually close my eyes as I walk by it.
The wind dries my eyes.
Today I forgot and noticed something flutter on the floor.
Stooping down, I found a Monarch.
It seemed to be unable to lift out of the draft.
I picked it up on the paper I was carrying.
I carried it past the fan, protecting it from the wind.
Outside, I found a broad leaf weed to place it on.
 I waited a moment to be sure it was able to hold on.
I know I saved him because the guy that works in that area would think nothing about a smash.
Not looking for praise.
  Just sharing a Feel Good moment.   ;)

  2. Hi Carol and oh my goodness how wonderful. Monarchs are a sublime creation that we all love.Monarchs are making their way to Mexico right now to be there on Dia de Los Muertos. Why they do that every year, no one has figured out.1/2 billion Monarchs migrate from North america to Central Mexico, a total of 2500 miles at 100 miles a day. Can you believe that? Awesome. They get there just in time for the celebration of el dia. This is so awesome, I shake in my socks, tee hee. Great post and thank you for saving the great MONARCH. You are my hero!!

  8. We took photos today of a swarm(?) of Monarchs that had stopped on their journey for some R and R on a patch of goldenrod. To think this was in N j and to know they were on their way to Mexico was awesome! Thanks Carol, love your story. They are so fragile!

  10. Butterflies are so beautiful and their lives are short enough. Giving it a few more minutes or hours is a special thing.

  11. We watched Monarchs on their journey south feeding on waterside bushes yesterday, dozens of them. Incredible that the wind up in Mexico! Perhaps yours was one of them. I like that thought!
