Gorgeous photos! LOVE the butterfly pictures. I want to take a walk in your prairie, it looks so serene.

Can you tell us more about the butterflies you raised from caterpillers and how you did it? Any more pics?

I will work on that...I kept a daily "diary" with photos with the last batch of 13 Monarch caterpillars...I have a "time lapse" of photos taken over the course of an hour as one of the caterpillars made the change..
did you know that the first thing that a Monarch will do when they begin to form the chrysalis is expel their heads?

Wow........ Thanks to the both of you!
She and I watched the sunset.
Perfect temperature, slight breeze and not many mosquitoes.
It doesn't get much better than that!
