In My Garden

It's the height of caterpillar season...I have lots and lots of Monarch's and have even found a few Swallow Tails munching away at my parsley. Today I discovered a Monarch chrysalis hanging from my mailbox post. I rarely see them in this stage outside - I think they usually hide in the bushes to transform, so a close up view like this normally only happens in the bug box.

In these uncertain times it's nice to see reminders like this that life goes on. Beauty is all around us...where have you found it?

Great Shots....I plan on finding beauty tonight in a bag of buttery movie popcorn.

Wonderful, I don't know that I've ever seen a monarch chrysalis before. Thanks for sharing!!
