l have been a part of a few successful wildlife rescues and educate people on wildlife and environmental issues. We have helped in issues to save wetlands, woodlands etc.to save the precious life within. It is well worth the effort. We can all learn to live and work together. Education is the key. In 2011 I won an education award from Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority for the work and photography I do. Habitat is fast disappearing and with it, many species are also declining in numbers. So many species can actually tell us the health of our environment and alert us to problems we need to know about. They all need to be protected.

Monarch cycles july 2010

I was given a few milkweed plants the neighbors were getting rid of as they were doing over the garden. I took them with great expectations that in the future I would get monarch butterflies. Little did I know that they each had a little tiny egg on a leaf. This one ate a whole plant and turned into the amazing monarch's chrysalis. The black mound you see beside the chrysalis is it's skin that it shed just before it went into the chrysalis. I have been watching these caterpillars and it is an absolutely amazing journey they take to become that beautiful and rare monarch. I will post more shots at a later date.
