Gorgeous!! I saw one (only one!) this weekend and when I went to get my camera it was gone. Glad I got to catch it swooping and gliding from plant to plant for a while.. Your close-ups are amazing.
Thanks! I've seen many more Monarchs this year compared to last year. One morning I spotted ten on the Mist flower in the backyard.
This just makes me happy. Beautiful moment captured.
Thank you Cat. It gives me hope for the future Monarch butterfly population:)
Lovely photos--especially the "bookends" Monarchs. They love that Gregg's mistflower, don't they?
Tina,Thank you! They do LOVE the Gregg's mistflower. Now if I could just get Milkweed to grow in my garden;)
It was a good year over here for Monarch's too....magic...
Heather, There was a lot of Monarch Love going on in the garden;)
