We watched the second Monarch Butterfly emerge today in the miracle that this transformation is.
Our long warm summer has seen dozens of Monarch butterflies in and around the garden. But it was only yesterday at Willowbank Park in Tawa (15 mins from my suburb) that I finally managed to get a photo of one. This one was resting on a native Hebe alongside the path into the park area.
They really are majestic butterflies.
The long spell of unbroken summer weather continues on here and earlier in the week I went for a walk along the Inlet on the Camborne Walkway.
I began my walk with this view ahead of me.
