A Monarch Butterfly


This is only the only monarch butterfly I’ve seen this week.


It stopped to feed on the tiny white flowers of this honey vine Cynanchum lavae, before flying on to the north.


What a beautiful way to start the day!


And then …. I was weeding in the garden, around the honey vine.


And there was a monarch caterpillar feeding on one of its leaves.

That was a first for me … calls for more research.

  1. Lovely pictures, good luck with the research.


  2. I’ve seen 3 this year but not a single one would hold still long enough for a photo. You got some good ones!
