    Wonderful photo Eliza, he must have flown a long way – he’s missing the bottom of one wing.

  2. Just gorgeous! 🌺

    A wonderful sight! Interesting that in the “animal” world the female is more colorful than the male, with her blue dots. Not sure if I have seen the caterpillars, even though the butterflies are here every year. Are you familiar with Lemon Slice Million Bells?

    Beautiful! Saw one of these stop on a sweet pea in my garden – makes my heart flutter! But where oh where are the Monarchs – haven’t seen any – how about you Eliza? If there’s any Monarchs out there they are sure to visit your gardens!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Kathy. Sadly, no monarch sightings as of yet. Even my regulars like fritillaries and swallowtails are not that numerous, possibly due to such little snow cover and the March cold snap. The Northeast seems to be the worst in terms of monarch decline. The Midwest seems to be doing the best, followed by the Pacific.

    So lovely Eliza 💛

  10. Gorgeous – both the butterfly and the petunias. My petunias look scraggly and sad right now. I thought it was just me, but it seems to be a neighborhood problem. I’m guessing bugs or something similar.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thanks, Sarah. That’s too bad about your flowers. Maybe too much heat/drought or humidity/mold? What’s your weather been like? Petunias are generally pretty bulletproof.

    Great “capture”!

  12. Laurie Graves says:

    What a duo! Can’t be beat.

  13. My favorite butterfly…the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail…next to the Blue Morph of South America—maybe I will live there in my next lifetime…or as an angel…LOVELY PHOTO, Eliza!
