“Dressed like a Monarch” / Theme: Très Chic
A little about this photo…
A work colleague came to me recently to share something. I had no idea that THIS is what she wanted to share.
She “raises” monarch butterflies to release into the wild. (They’re endangered, apparently.) Well, she had this guy in its cocoon, almost ready to come out as a butterfly. “They always seem to come at around noon.” She was right. Just after twelve, we watched this guy emerge. “He’ll just hang there for a bit while his wings unfold and ‘dry out’.”
Pretty amazing. She later released him into the wild!
This monarch is … très chic, n’est-ce pas?
