I love this. Love the wings. We have not had near the monarchs we had last year and the year before.

@Rose: We have had a lot of butterflies this year but this is the first monarch that I have seen. They have gotten to be quite rare where I live.

what a gorgeous frame and color pallette. It's monarch season here. Their happy flutter so graces the air.
