On A Leaf | Monarch Butterfly | New York

The Monarch Butterfly might be one of the first butterflies a person would think of in our region.

Monarch Butterflies are often found on flowers particularly Milkweed flowers.

However, I think I have photographed Monarch Butterflies on non-flower subjects more than any other butterfly I photograph regularly.

I really like how this composition turned out.

This Monarch Butterfly is featured on a nice and clean background as it sits on a milkweed plant leaf.

The lack of color because there are no flowers present really allows the orange of the Monarch Butterfly wings to stand out more.

Photo data: Nikon D500. Nikon 300mm f/4. Focal length 420mm. ISO 400. 1/1250 sec. f/5.6.
