Ruby-throated Hummingbird ....
Showing off his beautiful ruby throat!
I know I just can't seem to shut up regarding the monarch butterflies that we are raising! But I simply love doing this ... and it increases their odds of survival .... at least in the egg/caterpillar form. I have added an extra of the three stages of the chrysalis .... from the J-hanging (middle) to pupated (left) through the nearly emerged butterfly (right). This butterfly emerged shortly after this picture was taken and we will release her tomorrow.
