January 14, 2013 - Monarch Butterfly



Monarch Butterfly - what a beauty!

from Remembering Letter and Postcards



Sundae  Monday Jan 14 04:56 PM

Pretty, pretty.
See so few in this area now. We used to have so many on our buddlia that we called it the butterfly bush.



Trilby  Monday Jan 14 05:53 PM

I know---they used to be all over. Now I see one every other year or so. It's so sad.



ZenGum  Monday Jan 14 07:30 PM

I see a fair few around.



Deep fried in batter, delicious!

I hope you're saving the wings for the tossed salad, and just frying the bods.



SPUCK  Tuesday Jan 15 06:49 AM

We have a couple million show up every year during their migration. They hang, in big piles, on the u cal a pee dus trees down by the beach. They even built wooden walkways out into the swamp where the trees are.

Butterflies built a goddamn walkway???

Diz is a one-cat butterfly genocide.
He loves them for the flap flap flap.
He never even gets to the crunch because the dust on the wings makes him sneezely.

Bearing in mind he has only lived here for three years I doubt he has been instrumental in the butterfly decline, but I don't rule him out completely.



CaliforniaMama  Tuesday Jan 15 12:26 PM

It's very cool when they hang in clusters so thick it looks like a tree trunk until one of them moves!

They fine for harming the Monarchs where I grew up.

Even if kitty does it!

I should have posted the full recipe.

Melt some butter, mix lemon juice, add egg and breadcrumbs.
Dip Monarch Butterflies (whole) in this and deep fry.
Serve while still warm for delicious bitter butter batter butterflies.


Thanks folks, I'll be here all week, try the centipede.

Threaten a butterfly?

"Why you old fuck, Imma go get my homies and we're gonna come back and pop a cap in your butterflyin' ass!"

Monarch and Viceroy butterflies are very similar. Just your factoid for the day.
