The Perfect Catch June 24 2014

Ever since I planted these Hairy Balls plants (AKA: Milk Weed.  Scientific name: Gomphocarpus physocarpus) about two years ago, they have been attracting Monarch butterflies.  I These beautiful little creatures are often seen flying in and out of the garden especially in spring and summer.  This morning I was fortunate enough to catch one that just hatched.  I'm still trying to catch one in the process of hatching, but for now, hope you enjoy this photo I captured.  

You can also watch the video I did on these butterflies:
