|This is what the caterpillars look like..|
.just beginning to attach, before becoming a chrysalis.
|The type of flowers favoured by the Monarch.|
|The plant that hosts the caterpillars and chrysalis.|
|More butterfly friendly plants...|
|This is Amelie (as she has come to be known)..|
just before she hatched, you can see the markings of her wings
so clearly through the wall of the chrysalis.
|Just freshly hatched...|
|Drying her wings on some favoured flowers...|
|Having a stretch.|
|She gave me such a fright when having her first flutters she landed on my hand...bit of a shaky photo, me trying to concentrate and capture the moment.|

|On Monday, while driving to Emerald|
we chanced upon an old rusted out truck.
|Crumbling faded glory...|
|The colours and textures left from years of wear are beautiful.|
|This is my favourite...it's inspirational colour combination.|
|There was also a lot of 'growth'...nothing really stands still!|
P.S. these pix were all taken on my new HTC smart phone....
