I appreciate everyone who is giving monarchs and other butterflies a helping hand, and I want to support them however I can. One way to do that is by sharing resources I’ve created and photos I’ve taken.
For example, I managed to photograph a monarch laying eggs in our backyard in 2006, and the amazing transformations that occurred from egg to caterpillar to chrysalis and finally to a new adult.
I’ve recently added a web page with butterfly and native plant resources for educators and anyone interested in butterflies. It includes:
- Monarch life cycle
- How to create a Monarch Way Station
- 25 Kentucky native plants – for beginners who want to attract butterflies
