Macro Monday

Monarch butterfly

I’m so happy to see the butterflies coming through town. This has been such as harsh year for them and for us gardeners. This monarch is feasting on Gregg’s Mistflower, you can even see pollen all over its wings.

Check out Lisa’s Chaos for more Macro Monday pictures.


  1. Nice photo. I'm glad you mentioned mist flower. Mine died and I'd forgotten what a magnet this flower is to the butterflies. Isn't it funny how we forget plants once they pass on?
    did you get rain yesterday? I hope you filled all your rainbarrels and rain garden. :-) david/

  2. Lovely photo. Monarchs are such pretty butterflies.

  3. Lovely capture of the monarch.

    Happy MM

  4. Beautiful shot...I MUST grow some of that next year!
