Our 6th Monarch butterfly emerged today ... a female! Isn't she gorgeous?! And since my butterfly bushes are blooming a little, I had a different flower to put her on for her photo shoot. This butterfly bush is called honeycomb, if I remember correctly. And is that a little bug hiding inside one of the flowers? I just noticed that as I was posting this photo. Cool!
Anyway, this is our last butterfly so far. We haven't had any luck finding any more caterpillars this summer. I think it got too hot and dry too quickly. :( I'm not giving up though! We still have the whole month of August to go!
