Today’s post features the “granddaddy” (or “grandmommy”) of the butterfly world … the Monarch. It’s been a rather slow summer for seeing Monarchs in the butterfly garden, but just recently a few have been observed seeking nectar from the flowering plants in the garden:
Since I have a couple different species of milkweed planted (the host plant for the Monarch), I am busy checking the plants for eggs/caterpillars on a frequent basis. Hopefully, will have some “nursery” images one of these days!
