There were some of these beauties flying about, but I didn’t get my camera out until they left. Unusually more monarch butterflies this summer than the last three years. I saw them all over the place, which is great. This the first time though, that as caterpillars, they were in my garden feasting on the milkweed. I counted at least twelve of them.

They are in their pupae stage now, which I have not been able to spot, but I hope they come around again as third generation ones. The picture below was taken in the summer of 2012.

When you sit on this pier in Great Island Common, New Castle, the sky seems to wrap around you. This night, after a rain storm, a grand stage of clouds hovered over and just as the sun went down, it’s light set the sky on fire.

Before you arrive at the coast in Rye, New Hampshire, you travel through fresh and salt water marshes. In these coastal lowlands, one can find grasses growing along side tide pools. New Hampshire Geography.
