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.
