Purple Coneflowers/ Today's Flowers

Monarch butterfly on purple coneflower (Echinacea purpurea)

This monarch is looking a little rough but is still out enjoying what it really likes - the nectar of purple coneflowers!

Hard to pay attention to the flower with the butterfly stealing the show like that.

Love the butterfly. We have had a lot of them at our farm this summer.

Hard to decide which is the prettiest, the butterfly or the flower. But the two together make a wonderful composition. I also like whatever processing you did to the photo. It has a special quality.

He may be rough, but at least you caught one...not sure I have even captured one this year...if I did it has been a while. And this is good photo, too.

I see hundreds of little yellow butterflies flying around my house, but I have yet to capture one with my camera. You did marvelously with this one... butterfly AND colorful flower!

Beautiful capture. I haven't seen very many Butterflies around this year. Lots of flowers her so I wonder why. I'll keep looking. MB

It seems like all the butterflies I find have a chunk out of their wings. The perfect ones won't stay put long enough for me to get a picture. ;)

Finally, a resolution I love and really want to keep. Good article. Iflorist.co.uk
