Monarchs Fueling Up
Photograph - Photo
Photographic artwork by Cindy Treger. Photographed near Lake Meade, East Berlin, PA. These two monarch butterflies, Danaus plexippus, were feeding on the flowers of a pink butterfly bush. This was late in the fall right before their migration journey when the butterfly bushes are still in full bloom.
I wrote "The Birth of a Monarch" a childrens' book using my own photographs capturing the amazing process of a Monarch, Danaus plexippus, emerging from its chrysalis, and becoming a full-grown butterfly. The book takes you through the monarch's life cycle and migration journey. It also encourages readers to plant milkweed, the only host plant of the monarch. Children, as well as adults, will find the monarch story fascinating! It is available thru Amazon.
