13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Resting Monarch

I love butterflies. I find them fascinating and absolutely gorgeous. Monarch butterflies are becoming rare in the area I live, so when one fluttered into my yard, I was ecstatic. I wanted a new perspective on them, so I got as low to the ground as I could and took the shot.
