The Monarch Butterfly

Danaus plexippus

Most predators have learned that the monarch butterfly makes a poisonous snack. The toxins from the monarch's milkweed diet have given the butterfly this defense. In either the caterpillar or butterfly stage the monarch needs no camouflage because it takes in toxins from the milkweed and is poisonous to predators. Many animals advertise their poisonous nature with bright colors... just like the monarch!

Angy,
I removed the noisey grain with Paint Shop Pro X, added some red and yellow saturation and also boosted the contrast. I clone stamped out a bit of the BG purple as well.
