Monarchs 802 eclosed so far(some photos)

minrose(4Mn)September 10, 2011

With 802 Monarchs and 24 Black Swallowtails eclose for me so far, been a very busy summer. I have about 37 or so Monarch catepillars/chrysalis to go, sad to see it is near the end. I have finally taken the time to work with some photos, would love to share some with you.

Today I am going the Monarch Festival in the Twin Cities, excited about that, plus I may be coming home with a new camera to photograph my Monarchs!

I hope you enjoy my photos.

Beautiful photos Minrose. I don't remember if you've posted pics of your grow op yet, but I'd love to see some. Hope you have good weather and lots of fun at the festival - and see LOTS of Monarchs!

I'm down to my last 7 cats eating. I am kinda sad to see it coming to an end too. But there will be lots of eclosures over the next couple weeks - with at least a dozen emerging today. :)

Congratulations on such a stunning count this season! Beautiful photos, Minrose. Thank you so much for sharing. I especially love the photo of the two butterflies on your forearm. Your photos show such a great range of healthy plants for your butterfly family. I would love to take a walk through your lovely gardens.

You have done a phenomenal job this summer! Thanks for sharing the incredible photos--loved them all. Have fun at the festival--our festival got cancelled due to the drought.

Thank you, the Monarch Festival was fun. I actually brought one of my Monarchs that I raised to the Festival, I tagged and released it there, never done that before. Another lady gave me a book on milkweed that she wrote as a Thank you for all the Monarchs that I have raised this year.
