Happy Summer's Day: Some Butterfly Pics

Just wanted to post some pics of some Monarch Butterflies that were in my backyard.  They are my favorites. 

True to their name - this particular Butterfly loved the Butterfly Bush. But just a few minutes earlier, I was able to capture a younger Monarch Butterfly in another part of the garden - with my IPhone. This guy preferred the Coneflower.

Later in the season I will post some other Monarch Butterfly images - when they do their trek from Fire Island.  It's a sight to behold - seeing swarms of these beautiful creatures hovering over the Great South Bay.

Hope you enjoyed these.  If anyone has some Monarch Butterfly (or other) pics to share I would love to see them!
