Monarch on spearmint
anne taintor my garden kicks ass

This monarch butterfly had just finished laying a few eggs a few feet away on our milkweed plants. She snacked on the spearmint for a bit and then went back and laid a few more.

A close-up of the egg. If you look closely you can see the little ridges that are characteristic of monarch eggs.

Love the sunset and the monarch pic!

I think the heat has driven some of the Butterflies away here because I've seen only glimpses of them.

Are there flowers I can plant that will attract them?

Yes there are! Talk to your local nursery to fine out what will thrive in your area/yard, and attract butterflies.

I loved your pictures. Thanks

Thanks for looking and commenting. :)

Beautiful pictures! The sunset is such a wonderful colour.

I love the sunsets here in Wisconsin. Thanks for commenting. :)
