@Hiro: Pre migration masses of Monarch butterflies tend to be a bit more approachable.
Really well appreciated this one !!

@Existence Artistique: Merci.
How on earth did you manage to tame it? Is it on drugs? :) Excellent capture

@grouser: Let's hope the Monarchs are drug-free, ha ha. I managed two gentle wing strokes before it lifted off, thus it was a capture without a capture :)
I like having the hand in the picture which gives us an idea of the butterfly's size. A fine close up.

@Devi: A couple of gentle and slow wing caresses, and then away it went. It was very special to be able to do that. Thanks a lot, Devi.

@Denny Jump: There are times when the wild things allow me to get close to them... maybe because *I* look like a wild thing, ha ha... sincere thanks, sir Denny!
A lovely capture of the Monarch. I used to see them in milkweed as a kid.

@Irene: So glad you do; thanks!
A great poetry in the way you framed this too, in order to let the ideal space for the butterfly to leave !
