The Real Athletes of this Morning

There is a side story to the national beach volleyball championships.
I arrived at around 9 am to watch play, but noticed during the matches at that point that Monarch butterflies were working their way westward across the Ashbridge's Bay Beach; at the start of the morning I was seeing a butterfly every thirty seconds or so. Very impressive.
As I left they were arriving about every five seconds at whatever court I was sitting at, so sometimes there were three butterflies as candidates to be hit by a volleyball at any moment.
A lovely scene. But SUCH a marker of the season!
