19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Mobile
Me & You

A large monarch sailed through a garden of aggressive bumble bees to land on this flower. She hung around long enough to take photos and once we walked off, she flew away. I tried to capture her beauty as best as I could. I love this photo because it looks like the flower is perked up, awaiting her landing.
