Sorry about the quality of the video. I took it in the evening with the sun behind the shot and through the living room window. But I like it anyway and I hope you do, too.

    They are so pretty and so much fun to watch.

  3. Be still my beating heart. That monarch looks happy, which is how I feel watching it. Thanks.

  4. A Monarch! They’re gorgeous. I need more butterfly-attracting flowers!

    • I was so happy to find we had this butterfly bush. I’d never even heard of one before. I also let some milkweed grow to attract butterflies. I do love seeing them!


      • I had Lantana in San Jose which is a lot like Milkweed, but never got Monarchs. Just Frittillary’s and Skippers. Here in NV I’ve noticed in my neighborhood more Swallowtails so I need to figure out what bush/flower is attracting those too. I don’t think it’s my Day Lily’s or Daisy’s.

        I love seeing them too along with bees. It means we’re doing something right! 😀

  5. I loved it! I find watching a Monarch do about anything is fascinating, and this was definitely an up close and personal view. Perfect!!

    • Glad you enjoyed it, Judy. I get such joy from watching these guys as well as the occasional hummingbird, bees, or hummingbird moths that the bush attracts.

    What’s not to like about watching a butterfly? 🙂

  7. That’s not just a thing of beauty, but of pure magic. The way that it moves so gracefully, so deliberate and swift… Amazing that you were able to capture it!
