Monarch Butterfly

IMG_1741Work has been keeping me busy these last few weeks, and sadly, I’ve had little time to enjoy nature, let alone write about it.  But while visiting my sister in Redondo Beach for Thanksgiving, I saw a big beautiful Monarch butterfly on their lemon tree.  In honor of that lovely specimen, I’m sharing a video of the Life Cycle of a Monarch Butterfly.  If you’ve got 4 minutes, take a look at all of the amazing transformations this creature pulls off in a lifetime.
