I have monarchs mating in my yard...there are two couples and a spare flying around with many many Swallowtails.   I have never seen so many butterflies as I have this year. They are everywhere...lots of species.

That's a very good sign.  Monarch butterflies have been on the decline, so if you having pairs, it's very good thing...and butterflies are an indicator of good air, so good for you on creating a habitat and reaping the benefits thereof.

Those are so beautiful they should be framed and up on the wall.  You should go into business, sun, selling your photo art.  I see a lot of people doing this at the street fairs and markets.

Bought a milkweed plant at a local nursery.  Got home and found a catapiller on it.

Ended up buying two more plants, and producing 8 momorches.  Plants are recovering from being striped by the catapillers.  Hope they will attract some butterflies.  I believe the age were on the plants at the nursery before I brought them home.

We don't get many monarchs out near us...we have been seeing these guys a lot though.  I think they are called yellow swallowtails

Looks like a Tiger Swallowtail.  It's our state insect...lots of them around here.
I planted yellow milkweed and have tons of butterflies now.

I've seen tiger swallow tails around my house here in Hemet, but no monarchs.
  I did see a monarch at my sister in law's in Oceanside yesterday.
I'm hoping my milkweed will attract them.  I believe the ones I help were from ages played on the plants in the nursery or at the farm.
