Finally! by rhoing


Most of the butterflies that visit our butterfly bush are swallowtails and skippers, but I've been hoping for a viceroy or monarch, and I finally got one!

Confirmed at BAMONA as “Danaus plexippus” or “Monarch”;

From my handy-dandy Pocket Naturalist Guide, I'm pretty sure this is a monarch rather than a viceroy as it lacks the thin black band on its hindwings...
Marvelous capture! Lovely colors Thom. You've captured a beauty here.
