This feeding Monarch was found on the Migration spot at Hawks Cliff on the north Shore of Lake Erie, just east of Port Stanley. I was at a raptor and monarch migration display.

Monarch Butter Fly

The Monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) is a well-known North American butterfly. Since the 19th century, it is also found in Australia and New Zealand where it is also known as the Wanderer Butterfly. In Europe it is resident in the Canary Islands (except Lanzarote) and Madeira, and is found as a migrant in the Azores, Portugal and Spain. Its wings feature an easily recognisable orange and black pattern, with a wingspan of 8.5-12.5 cm. The females have darker veins on their wings, and the males have a spot in the center of each hindwing from which pheromones are released.

Hi Martin,
Two things drew me to this shot. First was the nice vibrant colors and detail in this shot. Very beautiful. Nicely detailed. The overall composition looks great. Second, we have the same last name! Anybody with the last name of EVERS has to be someone special.
