13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A monarch butterfly on purple flowers

I was at the Montreal Botanical Garden, which is one of the world's biggest botanical gardens, and I saw monarch butterflies fluttering around, going from one flower to the next; it was like a symphony of colors and beauty. I focused on this one this time, and it landed on an equally beautiful bunch of purple flowers.
