I snapped this yesterday using my iPhone 11. I think it’s smashing! I can remember when I was a boy, around this time of year, the trees would literally be covered with monarch butterflies. I love how the edges of their wings match the markings on their bodies.

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Maxwell, Nigel, Pirouette and GarGar. View more posts

It is smashing! Hard to believe they have become endangered.
