A Late Visitor

As I left my house to pick up my mail at the road yesterday, I noted a beautiful Monarch butterfly that was very interested in a stand of aster wildflowers that are blooming in my rural Missouri butterfly garden. I went back inside and grabbed my camera and grabbed a few images of this regal butterfly:
