Perfect Male Monarch
Photograph - Photo
Photographic artwork by Cindy Treger. Photographed near Lake Meade, East Berlin, PA. This young male Monarch, Danaus plexippus, looks perfect as he spreads his wings while feeding on the flower of pink butterfly bush. He would be of the 4th generation and will make the monarch migration journey, with his offspring returning next year.
I wrote "The Birth of a Monarch" a childrens' book using my own photographs capturing the amazing process of a Monarch, Danaus plexippus, emerging from its chrysalis, and becoming a full-grown butterfly. The book takes you through the monarch's life cycle and migration journey. It also encourages readers to plant milkweed, the only host plant of the monarch. Children, as well as adults, will find the monarch story fascinating! It is available thru Amazon.
