mama monarch butterfly?

There is a beautiful monarch butterfly that often visits the patio and front yard.

Here she is feeding on nectar in a California Delta sunflower.

I took these photos the same day that we released a female monarch butterfly that we monitored for a couple of weeks from caterpillar through chrysalis phase until she emerged from the chrysalis.

And now that we discovered 3 more monarch caterpillars on the Narrow Leaf Milkweed, I suspect that this is their mama.

Isn't she lovely...
