Raising Monarch Butterflies

I raise Monarch Butterflies when I have the chance, and this is one of my last ones for the Summer. If you look towards the center, you can see cracks starting to emerge, as the butterfly is ready to break free from its home. This was taken minutes before emerging.

Amazing and I never knew people raised butterflies, thanks for sharing a really wonderful insight into nature.

Yes sir! Monarch Butterflies numbers have been decreasing these past few years. I don't want them to go away, so I try to raise and release as many as I can every year. Just plant some milkweed, watch it eat, turn to a chrysalis, and release it!
