At last! A Monarch butterfly.

Again this year I have milkweed plants for the Monarch butterflies.  I had thought that there was no Monarch activity so far this year, but all of a sudden I had 5 middle-sized caterpillars.  They grew and left the plants, but I found 3 cocoons in the yard.  Yay!  Yesterday one of the cocoons hatched and a most beautiful Monarch butterfly was born.  I have been hoping to see this.  All I have is phone pics, here is one.  Enjoy.
