About This Image

I was out watering the plants when this Monarch stopped by for a drink. I ran and grabbed my camera and lucked out getting a few photos. I think it was tired and thirsty from fighting the wind. I'm surprised I got this photo, it was hanging onto the branch for dear life with the wind blowing it around.

Thanks for your nice comment Bruce :) I noticed it's wings looking a tad ragged. I think it was the wind, it's easy to get across the border.

Nice capture! The poor guy looks like he had a rough flight from Mexico, his wings look a bit tattered. Maybe had a hard time getting across the border ;-)
