Magnificent Monarchs

Late last week I ambled around Morialta Conservation Park, about 20 minutes' drive from home.  The number of Monarch butterflies there was astonishing! 
At times it felt like I was being "escorted" by these attractive creatures as they danced ahead, alongside and above me - a delightful experience.

The area is much more attractive in Winter after rain - at this time of the year there was no water running through the creek :-(

I believe this is a species of Banksia - spotted en route

Joining in the fun at Our World Tuesday
with grateful thanks again to the faithful team who enable us all to share.
Keep safe and healthy all.

I am trying to think of a butterfly that is more cosmopolitan than Monarch, and I can't come up with one. We have several varieties of Milkweed in our garden and Monarchs lay their eggs here every year. At the end of the season they undertake that incredible migration to Mexico. I would be delighted to see them in Australia - if ever COVID lets me visit again!

They are my favourite butterfly.
