15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
A migrating monarch butterfly sharing one of my zinnias with a carpenter bee, they are seem to be having lunch.
I planted a zinnia bush seeds in my garden and forgot that I planted them. When the zinnia bush bloomed, I thought it was a weed and almost cut it down. The day that I was going to cut it down I noticed a single zinnia bloom. The single bloom turn into many blooms. This particular zinnia bush started to attract humming birds and monarch butterflies on migration. One day I went to photograph a hummingbird and, to my surprise, noticed a monarch butterfly and a carpenter bee sharing a giant zinnia bloom.
