Milkweed and Monarch


 Wonder. Go on and wonder.
William Faulkner

 Milkweed is a perfect butterfly magnet and is the host plant for the Monarch butterflies.
  I was ELATED to capture a Monarch laying eggs! - See it HERE

Beautiful Kerri! You've always post such wonderful photos!

I think I read a little while ago that the monarchs had trouble in their winter hibernation roost in Mexico...bad weather or something. I haven't seen any yet, but I haven't been out near flowers much yet.

What a gorgeous butterfly! I haven't seen any butterfly's yet this year - except little white ones that I Think are a type of moth???

My milkweed will be blooming soon! I have already seen more butterflies this spring than I saw all summer last year.

I came to Pacific Grove one fall to see the Monarch habitat. There were literally thousands and thousands within about an acre of eucalyptus and cypress trees. You capture their fragile beauty so well.

How beautiful.. I haven't noticed an over abundance of butterflies so far. It may still be a bit early yet. Looking forward to seeing more of your butterflies.

I planted some seed sent to me by Ruthie at Nature Knitter, and hope it will grow to be a magnet for my yard as well. I'd dearly love to see the Monarchs here more.

Great capture with the sun on flower and butterfly. Both are beautiful.

If your Monarchs winter in central Mexico, you may see fewer this year. We had a cold snap that killed quite a few. But not as bad as several years ago when approx. 10 million were killed by the cold.
