We Tagged a Monarch Butterfly!

So I was looking out the window and saw a Monarch, I got the net and caught it. There is a trust called Monarch Butterfly New Zealand Trust. If you fill out a form, they send a small bag of little stickers, you attach these to one of the Butterfly’s wings and let it go, when somebody else finds a butterfly with the tag, they record it. This helps track where butterflies go.

Here am I getting the butterfly out of the net:

  
And here are some more photos:

   
 
And here is the lovely creature reviving from the tagging:

 

This is what the tags look like:

    
  Here is more info about Monarchs and their Trust.
Will be posting Trip #3’s summary soon :)
