I know, I've been slacking on blogging again...as Antoine likes to remind me! Things have just been busy and hectic lately, though I'll admit I didn't do anything over the long holiday weekend except watch Lost and snuggle up on the couch with Cheese. But can you blame me? It was chilly and technically I was on vacation. Anyway, I'm still working on my photos from my family's weekend in Hocking Hills. But to tide you over here's some shots of a monarch butterfly who decided to hang outside our house for a couple days in October. We initially found him lounging around by our front porch looking a little wary, so I put him on a leaf and transported him to a safe, less windy portion of our porch. Then after I took far too many photos of him, I moved him to the basil plant on our back porch.
