A morning with a Monarch.

This monarch spent the whole morning fluttering around this tree in my backyard and it gave me just enough time to snap this photo. Majestic creatures. Nature is both powerful and fragile, like us. As we travel the planet to see the big amazing things, let us not forget the beauty in the small and delicate. I love to learn about all types creatures that live wherever I go. I guess I hope that by celebrating these things, we can protect them.
