Image prise pendant l'exposition "Papillons en liberté" dans le jardin botanique de Montreal.

Le Monarque (Danaus plexippus) est un insecte lépidoptère de la famille des Nymphalidae, de la sous-famille des Danainae et du genre Danaus.
C'est un papillon migrateur qui est célèbre car en Amérique il migre en groupe de millions d'individus sur plusieurs milliers de kilomètres, deux fois par an, d'août à octobre vers le sud (surtout au Mexique), vers le nord au printemps.

The Monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) is a milkweed butterfly (subfamily Danainae), in the family Nymphalidae. It is perhaps the best known of all North American butterflies. Since the 19th century, it has been found in New Zealand, and in Australia since 1871 where it is called the Wanderer.
The Monarch is famous for its southward migration and northward return in summer from Canada to Mexico and Baja California which spans the life of three to four generations of the butterfly.

Bonjour Sochirca,

Belle photo de ce Monarque malgré les ailes assez endommagées. Le pdv et l'exposition sont excellentes et le fond, pas trop présent.

Les couleurs sont belles et naturelles.

Bravo et mdp,

Prochaine étape: photographier un Monarque en liberté :)
