Hatch

Hatch
It was so exciting to find the only Monarch egg that I’ve been able to find this season, hatching right before my eyes, so I quick put the camera on video to catch the moments. It’s quite interesting to watch this tiny, (almost invisible to the human eye) little caterpillar make it’s debute into a pretty rough and tumble world, where it’s got to bloom where it’s planted, so to speak, fighting off all sorts of predators and enemies before it will eventually find it’s wings. The Monarchs are scarce this year in many places, and the milkweed dry and diseased, so this was a precious find for a Monarch lover such as myself. This little one is safe and sound in a mesh nursery away from the foes that it might entangle in the wild outdoors. Enjoy the little star of “Hatch”

Taken in his butterfly house ~ The little star of “Hatch” is coming along nicely and growing like a weed (no pun intended). He is one long, lean caterpillar. Since he did so well starring in his debut show with 55,729 people reached and 17k views I though I’d reward him with his own milkweed plant enhanced with some sweet blooms that grew in my garden. He loved them and was devouring a floral meal a couple of hours ago. He seems long to me so I hope everything goes well.

One of God’s small, yet most amazing creations is the miracle and transformation of the butterfly from tiny egg to wings. Here Hatch has been snuggled into his beautiful, jade chrysalis trimmed with gold for about two weeks and is about to emerge with his gorgeous monarch wings and take flight to Mexico. How amazing is this? ❤
