A Monarch with it's wings open on the white flowers of the butterfly bush in the backyard. They visit from early July to as late as October on their way to Mexico. They cover a distance of 2,000 miles.

OMG, I luv it! I love monarchs and didn't get a chance to get a pic of it. I walked out one morning to get the mail and there was a black butterfly with blue on wings, by the time I got the camera it flew away. I went to the backyard and it had landed on a tarp so he turned toward me long enough to snap a pic and away he went. God's creatures are so wonderful. Thanks for sharing such a lovely picture (oh yeah I have my order in for Mother's Day already, butterfly bushes LOL) (09/25/2006)
