Woohoo! Beautiful! Send them down!

I was wondering were they male or female? , The wild ones everyone are seeing , seem to be male , Most I raised a couple seasons ago were female , Most of the migrating through here also seem to be male .
In the Butterfly garden if a plant is not chewed up I feel like a failure

That one is a male. Males have two black spots - one on each lower wing that are scent glands used to attract the females. Females don't have the spots.
