Monarch in the Shadows 2 - Ka'anapali, Maui (Explored)
It is a cold day (at least for Vancouver). With thoughts of Maui and my upcoming vacation in a couple of weeks on my mind, I posted this monarch shot. As I have observed elsewhere, there is a large monarch colony near the place we usually stay at. Judging by the wear and tear on its wings, this is probably an older butterfly.The flower is a rose-flowered jatropha, quite common on the island and a monarch favourite. I have to admit that I rather like the bokeh and light in this shot, though some may find it a little dark. Let me know what you think. The photo was taken in March 2013, with my trusty Olympus digital camera. Enjoy.
