Monarch on Coneflowers

This monarch butterfly was enjoying the coneflowers in front of our living room window this afternoon. It was a rare time that a butterfly sat nicely to have its photo taken; the admirals we've noticed recently seem to sit with their wings erect so the colorful sides aren't very visible.

Great shots! We have seen a lot more butterflies here than last year, and I think it might be because there is more milkweed around the ponds.
