My wife Leena raised 30+ Monarch Butterfly's this Spring - She counted over 80 eggs on our backyard milkweed plants from migrating Monarch's returning from Mexico. After emerging, and drying its wings, this one had landed on her shirt before starting its long journey to the north - It is always hard to say goodbye after spending several weeks with them from the egg to butterfly stage....
