These are some nice crisp butterfly shots. I have yet to see a Monarch this year.

I've only seen two monarchs this year--very unusual. But it's been a cool summer so far, so maybe that has something to do with it? There's still tons of milkweed around, so that can't be it.

Nice captures!

Very beautiful!

I recently had a Monarch land on my butterfly bush. I was able to slowly creep up on it and get the shot in my "Beautiful Butterfly" post (www.photogra-me.blogspot.com)

Beautiful shots of the monarch. They are hard to capture! Inside our house, we have one monarch chrysalis, and 3 monarch caterpillars. It has been fun watching the caterpillars grow and I keep thinking they are dead, when they molt and are resting! LOL! I can't wait to see them all turn into butterflies. At least one caterpillar is going to a friend, though. We promised last year and then the caterpillars disappeared. This year, we decided to bring them into the house to watch them. So far so good.
