Scenes from our front porch


This little beauty had been inside a chrysalis on the front porch. We had been watching it for at least a week now. On Saturday night the chrysalis became see-through; on Sunday the Monarch butterfly finally came out. We got several pictures before its wings dried enough for it to fly away. The chrysalis picture is one that I took; the emerged butterfly photo is courtesy of my daughter, who is quite the budding photographer.

How great to have this so close by to look at.

Wow! How exciting!

I've left comments to your past 2 posts.

Thanks for stimulating so much thinking, reading, meditating.

Certainly the monarch butterfly must have done the same for you!
