Nice to catch one with perfect wings and on milkweed. Very pleasant color palette and nice detail.

Beautiful butterfly and the ideal perch for a Monarch - nice one.

Perfect setting for a Monarch-aren't you lucky to have found one! Very pleasing pose.

With the soft light and the fresh Monarch, the orange “pops” beautifully against the soft greens and pinks.
Good light,

The 'fresh' look of this specimen is special, and your composition matches it very well.
