Monarch on Purple Butterfly Bush
SmugMug Daily Link
This Monarch Butterfly shot was taken at the Museum of Life and Science in Durham today. I was delighted to catch the Monarch on purple Buddleia (i.e., Butterfly Bush). I really like the contrast between the orange and purple. Thanks to Ranger Greg for the tip on the best place to find the Monarchs.
Although I try very hard for clear and crisp details on my butterfly shots, sometimes you just have to appreciate them in motion. Don't fly away too soon or for too long...
