A beautiful monarch butterfly taking a sip from an orange flower (lantana) at the Hershey Gardens.
Natural photo, color and light – only cropping. I waited for this guy to land among the purple flowers because the colors looked so good together. This was a free butterfly – not one from the Butterfly House.
Thank you for the features!!!! :o)
