Danaus plexippus (Monarch butterfly)

During my regular walk this morning I spotted a monarch butterfly having brunch on Wild Bergemont (Monarda fistulosa).  Pretty hard to slow these insects down when they are feeding, so I got pretty lucky catching a few shots of the perfect butterfly.  This is just one of the things you can enjoy if you keep your eyes open.

There is great shot of Wild Bergamont below also.  Tea drinkers might recognize the name as this is the same ingredient found in Earl Gray teas.  They are all over the Northwestern pathway on both sides of the path.
