Monarch on Blazing Star

Monarch Butterfly on Blazing Star, Kennebunk Plains WMA, Maine

There is nothing to match a Monarch Butterfly on Northern Blazing Star. This is a good year for Monarchs in Southern Maine, after a very troubling year last year. I have seen many in different locations. Last year I saw only 2 Monarchs all summer. To see one on the endangered Blazing Star on the Kennebunk Plains Wildlife Management Area near Kennebunk is very special. Sony RX10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode. 1/500th @ f4 @ ISO 100.
