* Top Photo – Ready for the Market!!! (May, 2017)
* Photo – Taken moments after a female Monarch butterfly emerged from her chrysalis while at the Olathe Farmers Market. Right next to her is another Monarch butterfly, still in its chrysalis, that decided to wait and come out after we returned home later that day. Towards the back is a Monarch caterpillar hanging upside down, in the “J” shape, preparing to change its caterpillar body into a chrysalis. Just behind the Monarch butterfly is a newly formed Monarch chrysalis. Finally, three empty chrysalises remain hanging from the plastic lid of our “Monarch Habitat.” All six of these Monarchs were found as caterpillars on the Milkweed we have growing in our backyard. We had so much fun sharing these amazing creatures with all who stopped by and discussing how we can help the Monarchs by planting more Milkweed in our outdoor spaces!
