[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Monarch Butterfly feeding. News reports indicated that this past summer had a huge decrease in the number of Monarchs, but from my own observations, I thought the numbers were higher than normal. The opinions may reflect the regional distribution of the butterflies during the summer of '06.

great colors good focus nice composition.

Nice lovely colors and excellent POV. For a better DOF try using a aperture of f/8 or f/11 depending on lighting. To bad for the antenna and wing tip that are cropped out of the picture.
