Monarch Butterfly

I finally had the opportunity to get close enough to a Monarch butterfly to snap a few shots. There were dozens of them flying among the autumn wildflowers in the fields surrounding St. Catherine Creek National Wildlife Refuge located southwest of Natchez, Mississippi.  I observed several different species of butterflies but had difficulty shooting photos because they were constantly on the move.  

Such beautiful creatures...


  1. I love flutterbys. I'm an impatient picture-taker. I rarely manage to catch the shot.

  2. Monarchs are one of my favorite butterflies. Love your images. Carol
