The Monarch Butterfly and The Cecropia Moth
Miraculous Stages and Changes
Two books in one!
After five years of observation, documentation, and photography, it was a
privilege to preserve these fleeting moments in time. With over ninety close-up
and beautifully detailed photographic images, you will learn about the amazing
transformation of the monarch butterfly and the elusive, nocturnal cecropia moth.
This book features a spectacular photographic depiction of both the monarch butterfly
and the cecropia moth through their entire life cycle. Every step by step
image is detailed and explained with clear, kid-friendly language that can also be
enjoyed by adults. All the documentation and photography is taken from southern
Monica Taylor is a Canadian photographer from Bowmanville, Ontario. With a
love for nature, Monica’s dream is to create a sense of wonder and excitement in
both the young and old, celebrating this amazing yet fragile world of ours. Explore
the beauty and complexity of nature through the art of photography.
I was born and raised in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada. I currently reside in the
beautiful historic town of Bowmanville, Ontario. I have always loved nature and
the feeling of being grounded every time I had the opportunity to go north.
A late bloomer to the art of photography, I got quite involved in the Oshawa
Camera club, winning many awards for my nature images, mainly birds. While
looking for birds, I discovered a whole new world! It started with a single monarch
caterpillar. I did my research and found out how to raise one. I photographed the
many stages as it shed its skin and grew. One day to my surprise it turned into a
chrysalis. A number of days later, an amazing monarch butterfly emerged. It was
love at first sight. The following year I found the eggs and photographed the entire
process. I was so amazed and touched by the process that I wanted to share it with
my two grandsons. They have even had the experience of releasing tagged monarchs.
