Here are some photos from my short but pleasant hike in the Garden State a few days ago. I am not going to write a lot today. I will let the photos do the talking for me. Mother Nature was dressed for show on this lovely September day in Cape May!
While I didn't get any photographs of monarchs as they headed south, I was plenty of them during my stay at the Cape. I marveled at these tiny creatures, preparing to fly across the huge Delaware Bay and then a couple of thousand miles more to their wintering place in the mountainous pine forests of Mexico. How do they do it? How do these creatures, with a brain the size of a pin head, find this place that they have never been to. In fact their parents were not there, and I don't think that their grandparents were either. Somehow, they do it, against all odds. It seems miraculous!
