Monarch flutter-by


Have you seen them? Have you seen the fabulous royals floating through? No, I'm not talking about anything British! I am referring to the famous Lepitopteras: Danaus plexippus, aka Monarch Butterflies. They are amazing little creatures that capture the hearts and imaginations of so many Homo sapiens because of their incredible journey and startling beauty. I have become so enamored by these little ones that I have developed a section of my yard just for them, and even made it an official Monarch Way Station ( https://monarchwatch.org ). Heck, I may even decide to do something radical and go to their wintering place sometime just to see a few million gathered in one place. If I do, I'll be sure to take you with me. In the meantime, be on the lookout for their parade and invite a Monarch to lunch by planting milkweed!
