Worn Out! Again...

It appears that word is getting out among the butterfly population that I’m running the only elderly convalescent care facility in the area. Today, in almost the same spot I found this guy a month ago, I found this female monarch:

She too is worn out!

Odd that it happened precisely in front of my porch steps again though.

But hey, we’re all about service here at Flightless Butterfly Hospice. I put her on the African violet over the kitchen sink where the sun is warm and the wind isn’t blowing.

I’m sure she doesn’t have long, but I’m glad I got to see her. Perhaps she’s one of my babies coming home one last time. Ok, maybe not, but I think all the monarchs around my house could be one of my very own hatchlings. And if they all want to come home to die, I hope they all wear out right in front of the front porch.

At least I’ll know where to find them!
