Monarch in the Garden


Yesterday, this monarch stayed in my backyard all afternoon. I wish I could have caught her on video, but I was lucky to catch this still shot. My nectar plants are in bloom now so the butterflies have lots of options- buddeleia, penta, milkweed,a variety of salvias, and more. I’m including another pic of her on milkweed.   So far, no eggs… maybe tomorrow. monarch-on-milkweed-for-blog
