This Monarch came to visit my flowers nearly two months ago, on October 26, 2017.
They used to be so abundant when I was a kid. Now, they’re so rare, and it’s such a shame.
I have been meaning to post this for so long, but things just get so busy.
I’m taking the time to post now, and hope you enjoy the included photos!
There have been many beautiful butterflies that I’ve seen here around Atlanta, Georgia this summer, but have been too busy to post until now.
I try to look for and photograph butterflies in my area that I’ve not seen here before.
Included in this blog post are those butterflies that I haven’t seen in my area before, in my past 17 years of living here in Georgia.
I’ve also included a picture of some swallowtail caterpillars, for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!
Enjoy this amazing beauty that was found in my front yard today under a Sweet Gum tree. It is an Imperial Moth (Eacles imperialis) caterpillar, and was 3.25 inches long. (I have also included a photo of what the moth of this caterpillar looks like.)
This critter is from the Giant Silk Moth family, and is the first caterpillar of this moth that I have ever seen in my life! I am so blessed to have seen such a rare beauty!
