  2. Stunning picture, that butterfly looks art deco in design:) Such vivid, beautiful flowers too.

  3. Alan, what a beautiful photo. The plant the Monarch is nectaring on is Tropical Milkweed. Monarchs not only nectar from the flowers but they lay their eggs on this plant.

  4. Love your pictures! Be careful out there, and hello from the Mountains of Washington State
