Butterflies-Three’s Company


By default, all images are printed on high quality Kodak Luster paper with archival ink, then mounted on a 2mm styrene backing.  The backing prevents images from buckling when matted and framed.

All prints are available in other mediums and also can be customized as a card or a special gift for someone.  Enjoy browsing and drop me a line if you have any questions.



THREE’S COMPANY is a group of monarchs I raised this year. Some of the butterflies emerged from eggs I found on the milkweed leaves and others from caterpillars or “cats” I found munching on milkweed leaves. The late season monarchs leave my gardens by the middle of October, heading south for the winter. They return early summer to start the cycle over again. As beautiful as they are, monarchs are foul tasting and poisonous to predators. They acquire this by eating of the milkweed leaves when in the larvae state. There has been a severe decrease in the monarch population due to deforestation. It has become the hobby of many to raise these lovely creatures to help with their survival.
