My latest shirt design is an ode to immigrants. Last year I spent my summer raising hundreds of monarchs, and I can’t wait to welcome these beauties back to my yard. Valhalla I’m coming!

Last summer I raised 130 wild monarch butterflies. Some were collected as eggs, others collected as caterpillars in various instars. Here is a story to go with two of my last nine from August 2018. Can you tell which one is the male and which one is the female? #monarchbutterfly#monarchbutterflies

Monarch butterflies are long-distance travelers, flying up to 3,000 miles between Canada, the United States, and Mexico, no passport required! To navigate, they use both their brain and antennas to sense sunlight. This female monarch was recently spotted at Downs Prairie Natural Area laying her eggs on emerging milkweed plants. This early in the monarch spring migration, it's likely this butterfly overwintered in the oyamel fir forests in central Mexico before making her tremendous journey to Arkansas!

Happy 🌎 Day! Today and every day celebrate the wonders of nature like the monarch migration! Each year hundred of millions of monarch butterflies overwinter in the Sierra Madre mountains of Mexico. Watch as they prepare for their spring migration north. Check out the full version of this video on our YouTube page (link in bio), and learn how you can help protect this beautiful species to ensure that this awe-inspiring migration will be around for generations to come. #floridamuseum#monarch @holbrooktravel @monarch_watch @wwf
Happy Earth Day 2019! Photographed in early March at El Rosario Monarch Sanctuary in Michoacan. Since visiting the mountains of central Mexico where millions of Monarchs overwinter, most have already migrated north to the US. Females lay their eggs on milkweed in Texas then die. The new offspring develop into butterflies and continue their journey north and east. By early May, we will start seeing them in Kentucky. #monarchbutterfly#monarchmigration
Here’s the first of a few butterfly redo! This was day # 01 of my #100daysbutterflies projects the Papilio machaon or Yellow Swallowtail! My main reason for redoing is because my techniques evolved throughout the project and I wanted to see how it has changed and another reason is to make the collection as a whole more cohesive. Swipe to see the comparisons! If you would like to reserve a butterfly, send me a dm and I’ll be happy to send you all the info on how to do so!

Ran into one of my most DI Garden Club members Joan Garrison and her sweet husband at the Easter service this morning. She did flower design for our garden club for many decades. . #memberspotlight#favoritepeople
Love these butterfly cookies that I made, but wow are they time consuming. I bought some natural food dyes, but had to revert back to artificial for the black. Still trying to figure out why getting a good black with a natural dye is so difficult. Wish my piping skills were a little better, but I’m getting there. #spring#butterflies
My pollinator garden, winter and summer. No need to cut back the milkweed, coneflower stalks (echinacea), or chamomile. The monarch butterflies may have gone south for the winter but other insects need shelter and birds need food. These plants serve their purpose all year round. In late spring once the snow has melted and the ground dried up, I cut down the stalks and new ones pop up. When spring has sprung petunias, marigolds, dianthus (pinks), and phlox will fill the lower spaces beneath the milkweed. When new milkweed plants pop up on the garden path I transplant them to ...

Butterfly tile mosaic smash-up. Before beginning a day of hiking and horseback riding up Cerro Pelon, it’s great to watch the sun rise above the mountain which is a monarch butterfly sanctuary. Morning coffee and tea from the rooftop of JM Butterfly B&B in Macheros. Best way to start the day! March 2019 #monarchbutterfly#monarchbutterflies

Day 16/100 #julissamora100dayaustin. I can't believe I've made it this far! I'm enjoying the process, but I do have to admit that I sometimes feel a little nervous about the commitment that I made. And, I'm sure that's what makes this #100daychallenge awesome, because you have to shut off the brain and just keep going. Thank you for the support, likes, comments, and follows. It means a lot right now. 🙏🏻💖🙌🏻 . . Today I'm talking about the Monarch butterfly. 🦋 It's the Texas State insect and has been since 1995. They really have an amazing story. It's the only ...
@hugos_art visited our class a few weeks ago and did a presentation on muralism and social change. Hugo talked to us about the importance of creating and using simple yet powerful images for muralist art. . Have you seen last semester's mural and wondered about the images? . Part 1: Helen. In summer 2018, at age 5, Helen migrated from Honduras to the US with her grandma seeking asylum after her uncle was threatened with gang violence. At the border, Helen was separated from her family and put into several detention centers, eventually getting lost in the system. Helen's family ...
2019 Monarch Migration Map The butterfly migration has reached 39 degrees north latitude this week across the Southern United States. A few of the more Hardy butterflies have almost reached 41 north latitude in Iowa and Illinois. It won't be long until the monarchs reach Freedom Wisconsin, and the 2019 All About Spirit Transformation Station will be open for business. #monarchmigration#monarchbutterfly
Taking inventory of the caterpillars, one was missing. I looked all over and finally found it, under the door! Not a good place. Using thread I moved the chrysalis to safety. #caterpillar#milkweedformonarchs
