I don’t know what is happening with my blog but this is the second time I have to cut a post in two parts because when I publish the original it only shows half of it and the rest of the post is lost. So back to the Monarch butterflies. Here is the other half of the post. Please refer to the previous post so you know what’s going on with these Monarch wings.
Monarch female wing – no black dot.
More male wings; there is one that looks as if it had been picked thru by a predator. This is unlikely as Monarchs are poisonous to birds, insects, and mammals as they have milkweed in their system, from when the larvae nourished itself with milkweed.
I don’t know what I will do with these beautiful wings, maybe I will frame them, but they are too beautiful to discard. They remind me of the fragile beauty of this Universe and of how blessed I am to be able to admire it. It is a priviledge that I don’t want to take for granted.
