Raising Monarchs. 🐛 I’ve always wanted to watch the entire metamorphosis of Monarchs, from egg to eclose (emergence from the chrysalis). I thought I would get the chance to watch this in our backyard this summer, but one by one the caterpillars were preyed upon. So I made the decision to bring the remaining caterpillars, as well as a batch of eggs inside to raise. I actually watched the female Monarch lay egg after egg and at that moment I felt responsible for keeping them safe. So for the past couple of weeks I’ve been offering milkweed and cleaning up LOTS of poop. The last Monarch caterpillar went into chrysalis yesterday. We now have 28 chrysalides. 27 of these were hatched from eggs I harvested from plants in our backyard. To date, we released 11 beautiful Monarch butterflies and in about 7-10 days, we hope to send the rest on their long journey. I know some may say you should let nature takes its course and not intervene, but this experience has enabled me to teach so many friends and family about the importance of planting native milkweed and also about the Monarch’s natural history including the multi-generations and migration. I kinda do miss the caterpillars though. Thanks @proycan for always supporting me with my love of nature and desire to save everything. I know you wouldn’t want it any other way. *Lots more photos to come 😘 . . . . . #monarch #monarchlarva #butterfly #birdsandblooms #insects #insectsofinstagram #milkweed #backyardblooms #bugsandblooms #backyardbugs #ncwildlife #northcarolina #backyardwildlife #insectsofinstagram #mothsofinstagram #coolbugs #mothernature #mothernaturerocks #metamorphasis #caterpillar #caterpillars #monarchmigration #naturalhistory #amazingexperience #imissthecaterpillars #chrysalides #chrysalis

Old faithful, my 1990 VN Commodore, PE6278. 3.8L of pure mang. This one I've owned since June 2017. Purchased from old mate in Timaru, she's another $1500 banger. I bought the VN proper grandad spec. Hubcaps, monsoons, headlight covers and with just 187,000kms on the odo (which after the last holden I bought, I checked was actually functioning) Right now it's sitting at 227,000kms and is alot different to how I bought it.

A little Message From The Quantum brought to you by this surprise Wooly Bear Caterpillar visit...I mispoke; this one actually becomes an Isabella Tiger Moth!😃 Old folklore says: "If the rusty band is wide, then it will be a mild Winter. The more black there is, the more severe the Winter." Hmmm...😁🌄🌬🌨 #MessagesFromTheQuantum #SpiritAnimals #SpiritGuides #Caterpillar #Oruga #WoolyBearCaterpillar #LoveOnYourChange #EmbraceTransformation #Determination #Perseverance #Patience #MorePatience 😄 #HoldYourDreamsSacred #DeflectDreamDousers #IncredibleFlights #MayCallForSuddenChange #JeannieMarieBlaha #Intuitive #Medium #AngelCowgirl #PurpleHairAngelLady #Montana
