It's That Time of Year Again!

What's black, white, and yellow all over?

Tuesday, while I was at school snooping around in the butterfly garden I found some freshly layed butterfly eggs.

Pretty soon they will emerge and look like this.As they grow they will change into this...And finally, they will metamorphize into this! I love butterflies :)

While I was looking around I found a female Monarch butterfly laying eggs on the milkweed. Here are some wings of a male Monarch (top photo) and a female Monarch (bottom photo). Hopefully, I can find the eggs and photograph them under the microscope. Never a dull moment in the garden.

The miracle of how a cocoon turns into a beautiful butterfly never ceases to amaze me. So much of our lives is like that of a catepillar...we start out and often spend years as a colorless, boring little worm/catepillar...Then, after a miracle of God, our lives change into something more beautiful than we could ever imagine!! Cool, huh? :)
