The past few years the migrating Monarch Butterfly's have discovered the milkweed plants in our backyard - This Monarch emerged from the chrysalis stage and was drying its wings prior to taking flight. My wife Leena simply held up a large sheet of orange construction paper behind this butterfly for the background.
