Blue Monarchs

January 9, 2015

Ok, I know I promised Great Ocean Road pictures next. And they are coming! But these little cuties stormed the place today and I just have to post some pictures of them. I think they are blue monarchs, or something like that. Any butterfly experts out there? Anyway, they are very pretty flitting around the yard. There are HEAPS of them (as the Australians would say). They seem to like this flowering tree best, although they do also land on the bottlebrush trees from time to time as well. They are much more vivid in person; some of them look bright teal when flying by. They hardly seem to stay still for longer than a few seconds, so they were somewhat hard to capture.

      They are! They make me smile whenever I walk outside, although they are almost all gone now.
