Over Christmas we had Monarch butterflies arrive on our Swan Plants (milk weed). So I decided to photograph the stages that they went through. First the Monarch lays its eggs and lots of hungry caterpillars hatch out. It takes about four days to hatch out of the eggs. They ate all the leafs. After two weeks they turned into chrysalis. It took them ages to turn into butterfly. They came out and dried their wings and flew away. These are the photos that I took of what happened.
