Late Autumn Monarch

It's not a majestic lion, a towering mountain, an awe-inspiring ocean. It's just a butterfly. But to me, butterflies epitomize the majesty and wonder of the natural world. They represent so many elements of nature - - transformation, constancy, beauty, persistence, steadfastness. They are frail, yet mighty; delicate, yet enduring. The Monarch in particular, in it's epic journey, is an example for all of the diligent nature of life.
