  • Many of you know that one of my hobbies is taking photos of butterflies. Butterfly populations, and that of the Monarch in particular, have been on the decline in recent years. This is due in part to the loss of habitat; plants that Monarchs and other butterflies depend upon for food and on which they lay their eggs.

Perhaps we need to be a little more conservation minded and preserve areas where they can flourish.
