I cannot remember when I’ve seen so many Monarch butterflies in our garden.  It’s been several years since our Buddleia, also known as Butterfly Bush, hosted so many Monarchs. I got a little carried away trying to photograph them…

    all so beautiful! thank you for sharing, I have not seen one Monarch around here this season.


    1. Last year I think I saw one Monarch, and the year before that I saw only one. It was so nice to see our Buddleia full of them this year.


  3. They are beautiful! I love Monarch butterflies. I have a few in my garden. I was fortunate to get a few photos.


    1. Thanks so much! It’s always nice to see them, especially since they seem to be getting rarer here.

  4. They all are male butterflies. You need some females!


    1. These are all we had, whether male or female I don’t know. I thought the males had two black dots on their wings.
