Russ Hageman, McGregor, submitted these photos. He said, “The colorful trees border the edge of our farm fields just outside of McGregor. As does the sunset image. Actually the same trees, just different times of the day. The sunset was from the night before just after the rain had stopped. The sun was just about to blink out. The butterfly is actually from Foley, but a monarch is a monarch. A point of interest for anyone who enjoys bees and butterflies, these sedum flowers attract both in droves. This particular group of flowers is in a row about 20 feet long and I estimated about 100 bees of various types and about eight or so monarchs actively flying about.”
