Tragic news today in the world of flying bugs

Untold numbers of cute little butterflies seemingly put themselves in harm's way to their own
demise. No one knows why this happens, but it appears to occur often when mixed with high
speed shenanigans from these guys:







Who have been known to frequent places like this:




And this:








Usually found near places like this:






More scoundrels, though not known associates of the original two:










The friendly, harmless creatures were probably trying to reach their safe haven thought to be
located in this general area:

(WARNING! Graphic photos to follow!)












And it appears as though there are casualties on both sides...

original two from our story.

That is all...


:D

That does not look like the Texas I've been to (DFW) and up to the pan handle. Nice ride.

Poor bugs! What a touching tale.... If it makes anyone feel any better though... I can honestly say that at one point this summer, my versys was decked out in bug splatter from at least 10 different states!

If those are Monarch butterflies, and I think they are, they migrate all the way back too South America. Well some of them anyway.:(
