The summer-like temperatures of Oct. 10 made it inviting to explore the vibrant foliage of the Midcoast and take in a peek at any remaining monarch butterflies hovering around Marshall Point Lighthouse in Tenants Harbor. Above, one flexes its wings on the vegetation. The Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation & Forestry's Foliage Report states the color change this weekend will be high in the Midcoast.
