I lay on my back on a beach towel under my VERY tall zinnias for this one - many many times LOL. After processing, I kept wondering what the spot on the wing was. I just realized - this monarch has been tagged! They catch them gently and put a little sticker on the wing. Very cool, I think. Resubmitted for February 20, 2020
