Some butterflies spotted over the last few days

Some #butterflies spotted over the last few days:

A monarch that nicely paused on the grass with its wings open, long enough to catch a clear photo.

A swallowtail that I sort of caught in flight, at a distance. It’s very low-resolution, but it’s also clearly identifiable!

A cabbage white that I was able to catch with a zoom lens.

A monarch butterfly in flight

A #monarch butterfly in flight. I’ve been seeing one or two each time I go for a walk in the neighborhood, but mostly they’re flying around too much for me to get a decent photo. This one decided to stick around this one bush for a while.

About a week later…

Someone on Flickr invited this photo to a UFO/paranormal/unexplained phenomena group. 😕

Maybe they meant to invite it to something else they manage?

Or are there butterfly UFO stories out there that I’m missing?

Monarch butterfly. Blurry, but it’s a wonder I caught a photo at all with my phone.

ARMAGEDDON: THE ALIEN AGENDA #3 (OF 4). DC Comics. By Jonathan Peterson, Alan Weiss, Joe Rubinstein. 1991.

I don’t know if this was part of some crossover event or what. All I know is that these randomly inserted scenes of Cthulu-like aliens are fucking weird and I love them.

Wow, there’s an obscure flashback. What I remember of this is that it was a stand-alone miniseries spinning out of the Armageddon 2001 event, with Captain Atom & Monarch bouncing around through time, and…that’s about it.
