If you’ve got a good memory, you might recall my posting about the caterpillar of the Monarch Butterfly (link here) and its appetite. Unfortunately, the last time I saw a chrysalis, I was not able to see the butterfly emerge, but this year, not so! Hooray!
I was overjoyed to be around when a new butterfly emerged into the world and grab what I hope you will agree are some gorgeous photos of new life. It is a privilege to witness and be able to study something when it is posing for you before it heads off to do its thing. Amazing to see a wing up close as it is like lots of little square pixels of colour. Such beauty right there in the garden.
