Monarchs Rule!

Submitted by Michael Collier on 8/17/17

From Michael Colllier: “I’ve seen monarch butterflies all my life and have learned about their long migratory flights, but have always thought of them and their life cycle mostly in the abstract as one in a category of butterflies—just butterflies! But after coming across several in a milkweed patch I found them to be quite magnificent creatures, up-close and in flight; obviously a male, as my daughter pointed out, but what would I know seeing them from behind a veil of categorical ignorance… just a arthropod and, hey, they like milkweed plants!”
