Q: I've noticed that five of my uploads have " Hot" in front of the caption. Why are they caterogized that way ?

A: Do you know?

The butterfly asked the bee,
"Do you have the stamina
To work as hard as Hillary
Who stood before the camera
For the presidential debate? "
"Yes, indeed, replied the bee,
I see Asters to poll-inate
While you flew over me.......
Flapping wings in the air...
I studied what to prepare!"

View best in Light-box! Thank you!

Update: Of course as we all know Donald Trump won the election for president but it was not
by a landslide ...He received more electoral votes than Hillary but she received more popular votes. She is brilliant, not a quitter and was qualified to be the first woman president but it was not to be. I thank her for all that she did to make America greater and I respect her for her service to our country.

    Thanks all for your comments! Thank you also Judi and Gail for enjoying my satire poetry:) The words came easily after watching the debate on Monday night. Oddly this butterfly that I had to do some research on to identity what kind it is, as I don't think I had ever seen this particular species before in our area did not return today....It might have been just passing through during the time I was shooting pictures and I happened to be out there at the right time yesterday. Today the asters were full of bees with only one tiny yellow butterfly.

    Thank you Lynn for the congratulations...I am delighted to see this featured in Live Stories and many thanks to the staff for the excellent job they did in magnifying the picture to a big size! Loved it. I am hoping we'll see more butterflies this summer as they are scarce this year...
