I have been very lucky when it comes to getting close enough to the creatures that I spy in my backyard. I love watching the butterfly's so much. They all seem to have their own personalities too! This particular one was quite playful and didn't mind being photographed.

I have a very ignored flower garden that has produced some beautiful lantana blooms and has drawn a large family of Monarch butterflies this early fall season here in North Central Louisiana. Yesterday there were four butterflies flittering around the garden, and I was able to snap about 36 photos of them. Here is one I want to share.

Photo Description
This Monarch butterfly was in our very small yard, where she was laying her eggs, on the plant she landed on. She would fly around, come back, lay her eggs, then fly around again and again. She came back for about a week or so to lay her eggs. Then a marvelous thing happened, her babies hatched and ate all of the leaves off the plant. That plant being a tough plant lived and she came back after the leaves grew back and the cycle continued, as she laid more eggs. They hatched and the babies ate all the leaves. Once again, the plant survived and grew its leaves, but we never saw her again. As it got colder, we figured she moved to Mexico for the winter, but we do hope to see her again someday soon!

Photo Location
My very small front yard, in sunny, San Diego, California, zone 10.

This is a butterfly that I found on our front porch. He wasn't alive when I found him, so I put him in a paper bowl that I had. I took him to my children's elementary school, so they could all see it close up and enjoy all of its beautiful details.

Out among the flowers on a sunny day came this beautiful Monarch butterfly. He stayed awhile, adding his beautiful hues to the garden colors. The richness of the colors he exhibits is beyond description. Truly one of the radiant tones in the garden of nature.

Here is a view of the Butterfly worm I found. It was attached to the back of a Milkpod leaf. I brought it home and it ate the leaves, then attached itself upside down on the container. A couple of days later it had a green cocoon around it. For three days it hung there. The next thing I see is it is all black. Then it slowly slides out of the cocoon, and it is a BEAUTIFUL MONARCH BUTTERFLY!

I hope the pictures can explain the process better than I can.

I was trying out a digital camera I bought at a garage sale a couple of summers ago and happened to get a close up picture of a monarch butterfly sitting on a butterfly weed plant in my garden.

This was my last day living at this house that I loved, it had a beautiful butterfly garden, and this gorgeous friendly Monarch let me snap away at her/him for 30 minutes. I was able to get some wonderful photo memories of my garden and also this delightful garden-friend who gave me such a wonderful good-bye gift!

A Monarch with it's wings open on the white flowers of the butterfly bush in the backyard. They visit from early July to as late as October on their way to Mexico. They cover a distance of 2,000 miles.

OMG, I luv it! I love monarchs and didn't get a chance to get a pic of it. I walked out one morning to get the mail and there was a black butterfly with blue on wings, by the time I got the camera it flew away. I went to the backyard and it had landed on a tarp so he turned toward me long enough to snap a pic and away he went. God's creatures are so wonderful. Thanks for sharing such a lovely picture (oh yeah I have my order in for Mother's Day already, butterfly bushes LOL) (09/25/2006)

I recently took my daughter to a butterfly exhibit at a local greenhouse. They charged a small admission, and this served as a fundraiser for a children's organization. There was one section of the greenhouse closed off and full of butterflies and flowers they liked. The kids got to dip their fingers in sugar water and the butterflies would land on their fingers to take in the "nectar." She loved learning about the beautiful butterflies and it was a great photo op.

This is a picture of a butterfly (monarch?), that I took on my sunflowers. The colors all looked so pretty together and he opened his wings and just posed for me. What a beauty!

That's a beautiful picture!!Just to share, several years ago I witnessed a monarch migration with hundreds of thousands of them less than 1/4 mile from my home back in Chillicothe, MO. I watched in awe as they came through and stopped just for the briefest time in a tree and then took off again. It was the most beautiful sight. I don't remember which season it was, but had to be decent out as they can't handle temperatures below 55 according to the net and 40 would kill them. They migrate twice a year, that was the first and last time I ever witnessed that, and I so wish I had a camcorder on me at the time. (09/12/2006)
