Artist's Description

During a visit to a local cooperative organic garden, one of the gardeners made sure I saw this new Monarch, fresh from the chrysalis and drying its wings. It was perched on a leaf of the garden’s Anna apple tree, which gave me a nice green background but almost no ability to change my angle. If you view the large version, you can see the remnants of the new butterfly’s very first pollen feast. (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 70-300mm zoom at 300mm, 1/200 sec., f/8, ISO 400, open shade, handheld)
