The Monarch Butterfly: feeding on the Butterfly Weed

Hi Everybody!  A Big Hello to my friends in India!  Good to be back.  I have been involved in some seasonal work (as in making Christmas Cards and Mailing them out for My Clients!)  I can take a few more orders up to December 1 if anybody else needs Card Creations (PhotoArt by:  brendasue) and mailout. December first is also the deadline for ordering any of my prints (usually 8 x 10s) to be giftwrapped and mailed to address of your choice with Personal Card Creation. I encourage you to order now if you want large Prints, Canvas or Framed options as they will be shipped UPS.

Please visit my Picasa Web Albums at the link below where you can see thousands of my Nature PhotoArt and choose as many as you want (no limits)!

Here is Bluebonnet Today.  On the left side of the frame is a tall spindly-looking plant with a orange tuft of flowers on top. That is the butterfly weed.  That is where the monarch landed to drink his nectar. Butterflies do not have teeth in their mouth so they do not chew any food. They have a straw built in to suck the nectar from flowers.

Here she just landed and has her straw in a yellow flower.

She crawls around on the top of the flowers, checking everyone for a drink of nectar.

What a Beauty!  She is migrating through Texas to Mexico

I tried to get close enough you could see her feeding.

They open and close their wings as they feed. This is closed.

They have no problem hanging upside down to drink

She has a pair of antennae sticking up above her head.
