Wordless Wednesday (Monarchs on Milkweed Edition)

This is Week Three of the Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge. This week’s color is orange. 
Thank you, monarch butterflies, for your impeccable timing – I appreciate you passing through Tallahassee just in time for orange week!
There is some really interesting information about the Monarch Butterfly Migration here. (For example, I learned that “not one single butterfly succeeds in a full migration due to their short life span.  It generally takes three or four generations of Monarch butterflies to complete a full migration cycle.”)

The Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge is hosted by Kristi of Live and Love Out Loud, Alicia of Project Alicia, and Rebecca of Bumbles and Light. The challenge welcomes photographers of all skill levels. Next week’s theme is red! The linky for red week will be up starting on Friday, October 28.

  1. We went a few years without seeing any Monarchs but this summer we finally started seeing them returning to our area. Of course I never had my camera with me when I spotted them though!

  2. Paula, aloha. What fantastic photographs. As it happens, I have long been into butterflies; in fact, the whole caterpillar/butterfly metamorphosis.

    As you will soon learn, Paula, I am a huge fan of quotes. Here is one of my favorite inspirational quotes that relates to butterflies.

    “How does one become a butterfly? You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar” ~ Michael Motley

    Best wishes for a magnificent week ahead. Until next time, aloha. Janet
