15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Monarch on a Flower at Lewis & Clark State Park, Onawa, IA
This is a photo of a Monarch butterfly feeding on a yellow wildflower along the shore of Blue Lake at Lewis & Clark State Park near Onawa, IA. I woke up early to take some nature photos but missed the sunrise. I soon realized there were butterflies all over feeding on the wildflowers at the edge of the lake so it made my day that they allowed me to get close enough for a photo shoot!
