    Saw two huge yellow butterflies interacting within the air, for maybe ten seconds earlier this morning. It was as if they were either kissing or fighting. Just saw two more doing the same. I have seen many of them this fall and don't recall previously seeing them last year. It seems that via the link they are migrating south.

    Still attempting to learn whether these big yellow butterflies are fighting mid-air with one another at times. I do recall that a user here made mention long ago, stating that he was potentially interested in creating a butterfly garden, for one of his female elders, being that she had expressed an interest in such. This is a well written article out of Georgia about their migrations and more, including their preferred flowers.

    Huge western conifer seed bug flew into my hummer garden not long ago, landing upon my favorite clay planter. Wondered whether it might also eat stink bugs; so, I began an experiment, quickly grabbing a few and placing them there, as well. I ended up inadvertently startling it, and it dropped down into one of my begonias or through the wooden deck slats.

    Big yellows continue migrating southward today.

    No idea why a school bus would be flying into the subdivision with white lights flashing at 6:25am, but one just did so. That's way too early for any kiddies, in my opinion, because they require their rest and a good breakfast.

    6:25am. There goes that school bus again. I rarely rode the bus but know that when I did, it most certainly wasn't at this hour. Ridiculous!

    I saw an upcoming low of a frigid 42°F within the next few days (edit: Saturday night). I doubt that I will be sitting out here patiently awaiting my hummerbirds, then. Too cold for my likes...
