Our monarch butterfly garden

Out in the far field we keep a large patch of the field unmown this time of year because there is a lot of milkweed which the monarch caterpillars require to feed on. These are pictures of a caterpillar, a chrysallis which is the caterpillar in transformation to a monarch butterfly and then the final picture is butterfly that hatched this morning, the empty chrysallis below and another caterpillar waiting to form it’s chrysallis to the right. It is an incredible journey for these winged beauties. If you would like to read more just click on www.kidzone.ws/animals/monarch_butterfly.htm
