15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A monarch butterfly sipping the sweet nectar of a flower.

I love the way the monarch's wings coordinate with the flower it is perched on! I also think the high amount of detail and clarity throughout the photo makes it pleasing and pretty to view.
