Monarch

We don't see many monarch butterflies, but this one was found intact on the grill of my husband's truck. Here, it is nestled on a rosemary branch.

Beautiful pic! How did you get that butterfly to spread its wings and pose for you like that?

Yes, this butterfly is deceased, but it held its color and shape beautifully in the grill of the truck.

What a great photo. I agree with Raven, it's like a memorial service, a tribute to beauty. Amazing that it wasn't damaged!
