Photo of the Month - June 2009
Hello Nature Canada,
This milkweed pod was photographed at Hendrie Valley, Burlington, Ontario.
Thanks for sharing this finely textured photo of an autumn milkweed pod spreading its seeds with us, Jean!
This is the perfect time of year to see milkweed in bloom. If you're lucky, you may even see a monarch butterfly among the flowers. The monarch butterfly is often known as the "milkweed butterfly" because milkweed is the only plant monarch larvae can eat. Find out more about milkweed, and how you can grow it in your own yard to help monarchs, in our butterfly garden guide.
