WANT a "QUICKIE" ? Today -- Monarch

Quickie Today!!!
The Monarchs are here.  Took these photos today of the many many many --  dozens of them, Monarchs in the Butterfly Garden. Some laying eggs, others hatching into caterpillars and everyone feeding on a beautiful sunny day!
There were years when only a couple (two to five) would be seen all season.  This year is different.  There are so many here this year.
A joy to see and a joy to know that their numbers have increased.




There we numerous other "kinds" of butterflies but this posting is limited only to the Monarch.
