                        My Monarch Butterflies  

These beautiful butterflies are from my last, the third project.
I'm getting ready for a new season to raise more Monarchs. I'm so excited and I miss my babies... I'm happy they did better last year.  :)

My Monarch Butterfly Female Enjoying Freedom 

She flew directly on Peregrina flowers in My Garden. I noticed, they don't like them during the winter. She was looking for a better flower in the grass. I had Spanish Needles flowers all over the place, before I had to cut our grass. I kept them for the bees and butterflies. They love them.  :)

              Goodbye my little Monarch friend Lucas 

It was a sad moment, when I saw Lucas getting weak at morning. He ate a little from the banana. Then he stopped and became slower and stopped responding, and he is gone now.
That was a pretty quick change from yesterday, when he was running, eating, playing, and active. He was 1 month and 5 days old. Not bad for a saved little fellow from the chrysalis. If I would not take him out from it, he would have 0 days of his life. That was my little success. I prolonged his life and made it beautiful for him and me, too.
He was a lot of fun and pleasure to have and to watch his habits, what he liked or not. He was sleeping on my chest, or finger, hand, pullover. When he didn't like something, he let me know. He was never able to fly, but he was using his wings to support himself during the eating, or to spin on his back, and back on his feet. This way he moved faster and jumped from my bed on the floor. He did it multiple times, it was funny. He ate from my hand, and when he was nervous for some reason, he was wiggling his dry wings, or who knows, why? I just took him in my bathroom or used my rain water from the garden and pretended that's raining. He liked to get wet, he calmed down and was washing himself on my hand, or T-shirt. It was lovely to observe him. Now I'll miss it, I have to say GOODBYE. R.I.P. my little one, moj malicky!   :(

          The Last Breakfast with Lucas  

The weather was beautiful on Monday (last week), so I decided to let my Monarch butterflies go. It was a sad moment for Lucas and me. Especially for him, because he enjoyed their presence a lot. He will be alone with me again. Lucas is besides my keyboard now. He is one month and 4 days old, doing just fine.  :)
