This reminds me that years ago during a cruise of the Southern Caribbean, we went to a butterfly farm, on I think, St Marrten.

One of the things that I most recall, was that, by far the most popular butterfly they sold was the Monarch and that since they fed only on Milkweed, it was a major expense for them. It would grow on the island but not well. That they spent a great deal of effort on making sure their Monarch butterflies got enough to eat.

We North Americans in the tour were surprised that something that is such a common, almost unnoticeable, part of our summers could seem so . . . exotic, to others.

Your photos brought back a most pleasurable time of my life to me. Thanks.

This is the first summer in my life that I have really noticed the frenetic activities around a patch of milkweed!  I suspect that familiarity breeds un-noticeability.

One of the great joys of this recent hobby is that I notice more nowadays.

And I am pleased when my long suffering friends express appreciation for noticing new things in their everyday lives ... as a  result of seeing some of my stuff.
