Sights of Labor Day Weekend

 Nearly all the Monarch Butterfly activity I've seen this summer has been on Narrow-leaf Milkweed, rather than on the Showy Milkweed it is more often identified with.  Interesting.  It's been great to see lots of them during the last weeks of summer, especially when I read about their rapid decline in most areas.

 I find the aphids that gather on the Narrow-leaf Milkweed at this time of year beautiful.  The orange is bright beyond words, and the Milkweeds don't seem to mind.
This little iguanid was only about three inches long from snout to tail tip.
