Was photographing flowers and butterflies and was shocked to see this one had a sticker on its wing. After I blew up the image, it was clear that it wasnt a sticker, it was a tag from "Monarch Watch"--some people doing research on butterfly migration. Apparently this butterfly was tagged at University of Kansas I found this one in coastal Maine. Fascinating
