The Beauty In Butterflies

 Butterflies are such beautiful creatures...
Magical in their own way, 
the process from egg to caterpillar, to chrysalis, to beautiful butterfly is amazing to watch,
and even more amazing to be a part of.

I see a lot of butterflies in my gardens, this year I am watching so many Monarchs soaring about.
These are some of the other butterflies I see every year!

Eastern Tiger Swallowtail

Monarch

Painted Lady

Common Buckeye

Cabbage White

My Black Swallowtails


- you can only fly, once you are willing to give up the safety of your cocoon -

  13. Each one is so spectacular, Debbie. You must have quite a nice lens and tripod to capture these close-ups? The butterflies in my garden won't let me get too close!

  14. A great thought at the end that relates to life. There are many life lessons that can be related to the metamorphosis of butterflies. I loved that you have so many varieties of Butterflies. They are all so beautiful. I have learned from you so much about raising them. I find you so amazing!
    Big hugs!
