Monarch Butterfly

Cloudy, windy day, but this monarch butterfly was a flittering (and all too brief) splash of sunshine.

Rise and shine!

Wow great shot. Lately it has been so windy here nothing stays still long enough to get a shot.

beautiful butterflies, we were camped near Pismo Beach and fortunate to have them migrate into the trees, amazing to see thousands of them in one location.

The thing is, if the wind isn't blowing - at least a little - it's really hot and humid, and I hate that. But of course wind makes photography tough.

I've seen pics of the butterflies congregating by the thousands, I'd love to see that IRL.

Yes, some butterflies are extremely sensitive to environmental changes. There's been a decrease in fireweed and milkweed and other plants these butterflies are attracted to, so this year I've not seen them as often.
