About This Image

We went to a park and there were literally hundreds of monarch butterflies swarming these pretty flowers. Since we had our cameras, we just had to stop and take a few photos. This photo was the pick of the day.

Thanks Alandra. I'm thinking that if I looked closer around me, I would have found some swan plants that the caterpillars grow on. It was nice to see the contrast of the butterfly on these pretty purple flowers. We were able to get really close (so this photo is in its original state) as they sunned their wings. I suspect that these were just new butterflies.

truly beautiful, Lulu, am late with this comment. The butterfly wings are just like stained glass in a window. Know what you mean re so many all in one place, as this happened to us one late summer with dragonflies, down in a field near the local beach. there were loads of them, feasting on the blackberries, we realized once we looked closer.

Thanks Karen. They sure are beautiful butterflies. Was so surreal to see so many of them in one area. Usually we have to go hunting for them and then they don't stay still long enough to photograph.
