First Monarch

organic_kitten(8)August 6, 2010

And it was on my butterfly weed and stayed the entire time I was outside and was still there when I came in. That plant was planted for the monarchs, so I am very happy.

The new garden had many butterflies today. I think I had a Pipevine Swallowtail. Is that what this is? It was hard to get a picture, and it isn't great, but I was lucky to get it at all:

TIA
