16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Monarch Butterfly

A monarch butterfly showed up when I was taking photos in the mountain. It was the first time I got to take a well-defined photo of this kind of butterfly and I am super happy with it. She posed upon a pride of Madeira flower that was in full blossom and the lightining conditions were great.
