Columbus Monarchy

My contribution to TexWiscGirl's Good Fences #81. Here's a couple more pictures of my first Monarch of the year:


And here is a nice German Village fence:

This is also my contribution to Michelle's Nature Notes (#332).

I haven't seen one as yet, but look forward to that. We have an effort going to plant milkweed to attract them.

Congrats on that Monarch sighting, They are so pretty.
That's a really nice looking fence as well.

We have plenty of milkweed on the job. I've only seen one monarch so far, though. This is the migration season, I hope to see more fluttering southward.

We know the butterfly is beautiful.
But does the butterfly itself know?

It seems I haven't seen monarchs for years. Perhaps once we moved to North Carolina we moved out of their natural range. Or perhaps their numbers are declining. I do miss seeing them.
Nice shots.
