A Big Day at the Monarch Ranch!!
When I checked the monarch ranch before going to work this morning, it looked like I would have 5 new monarch butterflies emerging today. As of noontime, I have 3 new butterflies and as you can see by the 2 chrysalis in the middle of the picture, it looks like the last 2 will emerge by the time I'm done mowing the lawn later this afternoon. If I can get all 5 to pose for a picture, I will post it later today.
UPDATED AT 8:34 PM-- Here's the photo of all 5 monarch butterflies. Aren't they beautiful? There were 3 males and 2 females and I tagged and released them at 7:oo PM.
