Monarch at Breakneck Hill Conservation Land

Still few and far between, any monarch sightings in summer 2014 are a thrill.  Today I saw what I think was my third sighting, but the first that stayed still long enough for photographic proof.

Sometimes I find that avoiding the temptation to use full zoom results in a prettier picture, especially when a lot of flowers are involved!  I am practicing using manual focus, and either I need new glasses (yes, I do) or more practice (yes, I do!).  Please be patient while I hone this skill!
