The Monarch has such majestic color for one of nature's many butterflies. This one was attracted to the bright pink sedum flowers in one of our flower gardens. I used the tele-photo lens on my camera, as you can't get too close as butterfly's are very flighty. I patiently waited for open wings. Patience and timing produced this shot to share with all you flower gardeners, and weather network viewers. A real rewarding photo for me, to share with you!
