Wild butterfly

After spending nine days posting butterflies from the Butterfly Exhibit at Brookfield Zoo, I thought I'd post some photos of a Monarch butterfly I saw while hiking out in Utica, IL.

This monarch was enjoying the various prairie flowers and plants.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed today's butterfly and the butterflies I have posted the past ten days. I have more butterfly photographs on Flickr and Facebook. To see those you can click on the links along the left side of the blog for either Flickr or Facebook. To see more of my photography, you can also visit my Artfire studio, The Shutterbug Eye.
