A different sort of cropping… by rhoing

A different sort of cropping…

No one can deny that Monarch butterflies are striking in their appearance. The bright orange “above” (upper sides of their wings) always catches my eye. But something else that fascinates me about this species is the white spots, both on their bodies and their wings. I’ve cropped this image to highlight the double-row of white spots on the underside of the hind wings.
