    Is that a Monarch? My daughter is obsessed with their migration down to Mexico every year and then back north. Awesome photo!

      Why yes it is πŸ™‚ Had your daughter seen the National Geographic special called ‘Great Migrations’? The Monarch’s migration down to Mexico is part of that story. The original article can be found here: http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/1976/08/monarch-butterflies/urquhart-text And I’m sure you can find the television special somewhere (though I’m just not sure where at the moment).

        Yes she has!! And I think there was a PBS special on them too. It’s absolutely fascinating to me that one generation of Monarch flies all the way down to Mexico, winters there with all the others, even though they’ve never been there. I read somewhere that scientists captured Monarchs during their migration, moved them hundreds of miles off their flight path, and they STILL flew to that same spot in Mexico. Amazing!

        And what a great picture you got! Think he was posing for you? πŸ™‚

        Yes, I think he was posing just for that one moment. It was perfect πŸ™‚
        And truly… the migration of the butterfly is amazing!!

    I know it is wordless but where did you capture this beautiful photograph. I am missing green and I am missing color in nature right now. ~Thea

      Thea, I captured this late spring last year. That being said… we are just starting to have butterflies here in Texas again. We start to get green and color right about now — and then it gets burnt out and brown by July and August πŸ˜‰
