Monarch Butterfly (Danaus plexippus)

Origin: North America, South America, and South Pacific islands

Sighted at: Pedernales Falls State Park, Johnson City, TX

Another shot from this past week’s visit to the State Park. In between the bird blinds was a lovely garden that was practically swarming with butterflies! I’ve wanted to see a monarch in the wild for a long long time!
