    Beautiful–and look at the axes here. The long leaf bisects the frame horizontally and the monarch’s wing, vertically, while the segmented wing parallels the hanging multi-blossoms. Every quadrant, every third is rich. This is masterful composition (again.) I am in awe.

    That’s it! A Monarch feeding on common milkweed and laying her eggs there, too, so that the cycle begins again. Most of the Monarchs born along the way in a season have never been to their spot in the mountains of Mexico where they will head to overwinter. Milkweed is key to their survival. What a lovely photo, Anne! Thank you.

    Again all I can say is thank you. It is a joy to have such careful and thorough responses and makes me wish to rush out and find butterflies instead of snow. Anne
