Circle of Life 3



The last one in this series. This Monarch had just hatched and was 'inflating' her wings as I took the photo. They are a truly beautiful creature. Beautiful as caterpillar, chrysalis and butterfly. Nature is truly wonderful sometimes. To balance this, another butterfly was also trying to get his wings ready for flight, but they were not cooperating. He was never going to take off and probably starved to death. Nature is both cruel and beautiful.

San Nakji for President!

Are you sure you are not being overly pessimistic?

Another stunning picture. I'm sorry to hear about the other butterfly. I hope it did survive.

But, thank you so much for sharing. These have all been beautiful pictures!
