I have chosen a shot from the archives for this last post of the year. (Today’s One Picture a Day is posted elsewhere illustrating an eBay auction.) This was taken in the summer of 2012. The monarch butterflies were a routine sight that summer. This summer was another story; the monarchs were nowhere. I saw two the whole season, and that was in the fall migrating through. The post is a candle in the window placed in hope that the monarchs will return this summer.
