A Monarch Takes a Drink
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The Monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) is a well-known North American butterfly. It is also found in New Zealand, and Australia where it is known as the Wanderer Butterfly. In Europe it is a resident of the Canary Islands (except Lanzarote) and Madeira, and is found as a migrant in Mexico, Azores, Portugal and Spain. Its wings feature an easily recognizable orange and black pattern, with a wingspan of 8.5–12.5 cm (3.34 in–4.92in). (The Viceroy Butterfly has a similar size, color, and pattern, but can be distinguished by an extra black stripe across the hindwing.) Female monarchs have darker veins on their wings, and the males have a spot in the center of each hindwing from which pheromones are released.|

superbes couleurs. le sujet se détache bien de la couleur du fond. par contre j'aurai aimé un peu plus de netteté malgré tout.
The composition is very attractive but the middle focus doesn't emphasize it.Damage also for the overexposed flower.
Waiting for the next..
