Monarchs galore

minroseOctober 3, 2009

Have not been here all summer, been busy with our garden, work and raising over 300 Monarchs. I would like to share some of my favorite photos that I have taken of the Monarchs I raised.

I have more, probably make another post another day. I have taken photos of most of the 300 plus Monarchs, some flew away before I got a chance. But I must have 1000s of photos.

minrose....those are stunning! May I use one for my desktop photo? How fun that must be to see them go on their way.

Beautiful! I think some flew here, the butterfly bush had several today, more than I've ever seen!

Thanks alot, yes you may use one of them for your desktop photo. The last two have hatched for me this last Sunday, so that is a total of 318 this year. I have not processed them yet but when I do, I will share some with you.
I do feel like a Monarch Mamma. Sometimes it would take me 3 hours a day to care for the catepillars, cleaning the jars and getting them fresh milkweed.

Will these Monarchs migrate this year, minrose?
p.s. I used to live in Duluth...are you near there?

Yes, these Monarchs hatched later in the summer should migrate. I live about 5 hours southwest of Duluth.
