Nature Challenge Day 5

Dear Friends, this beautiful monarch butterfly is perched on the dreaded goldenrod, dreaded because many like me are allergic to its pollen, i have clipped some of the wing regions cause i wanted to emphasize the hind wing and it sections with oblong shaped orange, the look-alike viceroy butterfly is smaller and has a dark line across the hind wing. see the image below
