Male Monarch Butterfly on Butterfly Bush

This monarch is one of eight that I tagged and released in the fall of 2014. It had recently emerged from its chrysalis, which I kept indoors to protect it from predators. He was just enjoying the sunshine for the first time, and he soon left my Indiana back yard and headed for Mexico. I hope he makes it!
