Friday PhotoEssay – Monarch Butterfly Edition

The butterflies are enjoying the zinnias in the garden, so you’ll have to suffer through several butterfly pictures. Hopefully you won’t find it to be too torturous!

Butterfly 1

Butterfly 2

CaterpillarI know, I know. It’s a dirty trick…but hey…Butterfly caterpillar, butterfly…same difference, right? (Yes, I KNOW it’s not a monarch butterfly caterpillar. Just deal with it!)

ClashMr. Butterfly, you kind of clash with your zinnia of choice.

Pink Zinnia

CannasI’m SORRY! Geez…you’re so critical! It didn’t seem fair that the butterflies get all the press, when the cannas along the front of the garden are so stunning!

A special thank you to Monarch Z. Butterfly for graciously allowing this photo shoot.

Have a great weekend!
