This is the first Monarch I have photographed this summer and it was cooperative to let me get my camera close to him...It wasn't on a beautiful flower but it still stood out in the woods among the green weeds. The butterflies are scarce this year and I am hoping we'll see more of them to pollinate the flowers!

Thank you to the JPG Staff for the courtesy of the spotlight on 7/8/2019! Very appreciated!
