Three muses challenge - Incredible journey

When I first saw the theme I went blank :) Then I started thinking about incredible journeys to discover new land etc... Until I remembered somthing I'd read about migrating butterflies. I thought they stayed where they were until I read about the The Life Cycle(s) of a Monarch Butterfly at:

And in wikipedia, it said that not long ago the Monarch Butterflies have migrated to southern Europe and Africa all the way from America. That means crossing the Atlantic ocean!!!!

I also thought about the incredible journey the butterfly makes from larva to full grown butterfly...

So here's my Monarch traveller :)


  1. Oh my goodness this is totally unique and amazing. Kudos to you for such a thoughtful, interesting and beautiful entry. Thank you so much for joining in.

  2. What a wonderful collage…
    Beautifully done.

    The monarch butterfly migration is
    truly an incredible journey.

    If you go back to March 6, 2008
    on my blog, you will see a story about
    this butterfly…


  3. Very nice collage. Such a creative idea!

  4. Thanks for the beautiful eye candy, because this piece is gorgeous. But also, thank you for the nature lesson. I have watched many a Monarch go through their chrysalis phase, and had NO idea they flew across the ocean.
    Thanks for the info. I want to go check it out now.

  10. Isn't nature wonderful? I love your beautiful picture of the monarchs emerging from their cocoons and the story of their migration. How is it possible for such frail creatures to travel so far? Amazing.
