The Monarch Butterfly

By taggart  
The Monarch Butterfly

Danaus plexippus. 3 --4 inches

Well known and studied--this migrator is a strong flyer who travels far -north and south in North America and Mexico! I saw only a few this season-- and a couple of caterpillars---

Have a great and safe week all!

It was a strange summer for us bug wise too as we hardly saw any butterflies
Or lady bugs . Hence my nicotiana's were full of aphids .
Nice one Jenn
Cheers Walt
