Just the back yard!? Nah, I want the front and side yards landscaped in natives too.

Immaculate Monarch

Although I included the monarch butterfly in my "Pollinators of All Different Stripes" post, I'd like to showcase it here. It looks brand new...perhaps it is newly eclosed from its chrysalis--and perhaps it is result of one of our very own caterpillars "born" and raised right here.

With so much rain for a week or two and too much to do lately, I never took the time to search for the chrysalises...maybe next year I'll get a shot of one of those beauties.
