The Butterfly Queen had another Extragavanza!



 Well they flocked to the Butterfly Extravaganza #3 it is always a success. They are able to inform and let people know how they to can have these pretty little creatures in there yard.



 I think one of the greatest thing is the children,. It is so great to see them learn about the thing's that truly make this world go round. Cycle of life I tell Ya!




I was happy to see Mr. Butterfly teaching this time. I love to look at the whole process of the egg to caterpillar to cocoon to butterfly. And if you are here you will see each stage. The man teaching is "The" King Butterfly. Yup they are a couple the King and Queen of Butterflies.

 

 The Caterpillar lounge. And in the rear the smaller photo is the lounge for the caterpillar's.
I like to call it Milkweed Mile.


And more milkweed


Class continues as I sit in the lounge for humans and watch the great Butterfly video.
