“‘How does one become butterfly?’ Pooh asked pensively.
‘You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar,’ Piglet replied.
‘You mean to die?’ asked Pooh.
‘Yes and no,’ he answered. ‘What looks like you will die, but what’s really you will live on.” ― A.A. Milne

  1. Marvellous photos. I wish we had Monarchs here. They can be found in Australia I believe, but I never see them in this area.

  2. When I lived in Los Osos, I lived near Monarch Grove, which is famous for the swarming monarch butterflies in the red and blue gums. However, I almost never see a chrysalis!
