    Default Monarch Butterflies

    We grow butterfly host plants in our garden and recently had a hatch of Monarch butterflies. I had 17 catters on my Milkweed and followed 2 catters they just hatched 2 days ago and I got some great pictures on my BLC Orange Nuggett. Yes they were staged but I couldn't resist the color combination.
