Danaus plexippus
Vero Beach FL
What can I really say about Monarchs? Well, some of them are quite wary, never allowing approach, and others less so. This is one that is less so. I think they are quite pretty insects, and I am glad that I can see them almost every day.

"I work in the field of forensic pathology, though I am not a doctor. I wish I was a doctor, because the paychecks are bigger. Instead I do forensic photography – or, at least, that’s what I trained for at the Miami-Dade Medical Examiner’s Office (MDME)."

That's me. It's here:

Stop by and say hi.

There's just something I like about the lighting in this shot. Perspective is nice too.
