Monarch

The rain stopped long enough for the Monarchs to come out.


I grow Milkweed. It is the host plant for the Monarchs.
I was reading about the Monarchs and the Milkweed.

They speak of transformation; they speak of doing things in your own unique way.

Perhaps, in a past life, I was a Monarch butterfly...I adore the scent of milkweed.

Milkweed is on my list. Sherry, those are fab shots. This year, if I see a Monarch, I'll know it.

These pics are wonderful, Q. I find butterflies so difficult to catch on my camera.

Jayne said...

I, like Chris, find them hard to capture at times. Lovely photos.

I should plant some milkweed too.
Will it grow in the northwest?
I guess so.

Dear Sheila,
I can not think of a better bug to have been. I adore milkweed too.
Hugs and butterfly wings,
Sherry

Dear Mary,
Milkweed is considered a "weed" and it is sprayed and pulled and is leaving the landscape so quickly!
The Monarchs depend on it and is the only food for the larva! The milweed makes the Monarchs bitter so birds do not eat them.
If you plant milkweed the Monarchs will be at your door step.

Dear Chris,
The butterflies do move about!
Sometimes if I am very still I am able to get a few good photos.
Thank you.

Hi Jayne,
I do love having the pictures of the different butterflies. I just bought a new printer so I hope to be able to print a few more for frames.
Thank you.
