Monarch Butterfly.jpg


This beautiful female Monarch butterfly emerged from her chrysalis a few hours ago.
My first encounter with her was when she was merely a tiny cream colored egg on the underside of a milkweed leaf.
I brought her inside, along with several siblings, to take care of.
When it came time to release her, I put her on a geranium plant where she stayed for perhaps thirty minutes or more, allowing me to photograph her.
Before flying away, she landed on my head.
I think this was her way of saying goodbye!
