Open Winged Warrior........


He is a little battered but still in good form.  As he sat on the zinnia he spread his wings to feed from the flower. The monarch can be seen from afar so I had time to run out a couple of times to get a shot.  The first time I went out the battery light came on and the camera shut down.  I was charged and ready to go the next time I went out to the garden.

I am pleased you got this picture. It actually looks like a piece of china with that fabulous sheen.

Sorry Larry, better delete that one! Great shot of the Monarch.

I am always frustrated if I forget to charge my camera. Glad you got this shot. The older gentleman vet we have calls our cat Rocky an old warrior. He has battle wounds, mostly on his ears, from his days in the wild.
