I think it was morph day at the park. There were many, many, many Monarch butterflies, all stretching their wings in preparation for the long migration ahead of them. Taken at Confederation Park, Hamilton, Ontario Canada on September 10, 2011 with a Nikon D60, 55-200mm Nikkor lens.

    Oh how lovely this is Deb. Monarchs are just not something we see in our neck of the woods here in Alberta. A fave :>)) Leslie

  • Thank you so much, Leslie!! We have a lot of them this year and it seems that they really favour the goldenrod! :o)

    What a beauty, Deb! Marvellous capture. It’s a shame to see them go, eh?

  • It is a shame, Mike! But we can take comfort in the fact that they will return next year! Thanks so much!! :o)

    Deb the butterfly’s colour really pops against all of the yellow.

  • Thank you, Stephen! Quite the contrast in colours, isn’t it? :o)

    GORGEOUS!!! So vibrant and warm and full of light! Great shot my friend!! :O]

  • Thank you so much, Tracy!! I wish it could stay warm and full of light all year round. The monarch’s are sort of a grim reminder of what season comes next. :o)
