Every day we see at least a few beautiful Monarch butterflies in our fields. Usually they are moving too fast too take a picture but recently, we found this sitting still on a leaf.

Monarch butterflies are said to be endangered, partly because of reduction in Milkweed plants which are the main food of the developing caterpillars. Fortunately, our land has a lot of Milkweed plants and we don’t have plans to remove them.
