Yesterday, I alluded to the fact that the Monarch continue to be regular visitors to the garden.
It’s not every day, like it was, but at least every other day, there’s one or two flitting through.
The love the butterfly bush the most, but they flit about a lot of other flowers too, like the hollyhock above.
I also recently learned how to tell the difference between a male and female. Above is the female. Below is the male.
You can tell the male by the two black spots on his hind wing. Can’t see them?
Here’s another male!
And now you’ve learned something new!
And for extra credit: The above White Cabbage Butterfly is a male. Below is the female.
How can you tell? The male has one white dot on his upper wing, the female has two!
