At Last, a Male Monarch

The garden is just magical — as soon as I walk outside, I see dozens of butterflies fluttering about, and I’m literally mesmerized for some time. And finally, the male Monarchs have started to join the females. So I get to add a new picture to my Butterfly ID page, which shows easy ways to distinguish Queens, Monarchs, Soldiers, and Viceroys. Here’s the image I’m adding in — see the updated page for the whole set of photos.

  1. Wow, Randy. That’s really impressive. I can see why it took you eight years — you have created an outstanding and very thorough resource. And that Red-Spotted Purple is just about the prettiest butterfly I’ve ever seen!
