Just thought I’d share a lovely picture of a Monarch Butterfly I took in my backyard in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
I hope you enjoy!

Monarch Butterfly

Dear DH,
Thank you for sending a photo of a Monarch Butterfly.  It is a very nice addition to our site.  Mike from Kansas recently wrote to us that he has not found any Monarch Caterpillars this year.  A recent article in the LA Times indicates that “California’s Monarch population has fallen an estimated 80% over the last 15 years due to urbanization, drought, weed abatement programs and pesticides said Scott Black, executive director of the nonprofit Xerces Society, a Portland, Ore.-based organization dedicated to the preservation of invertebrates.”
