Monarch Butterfly 2

A Monarch Butterfly feeds on a red Zinnia flower. This photo was shot in the studio using large softboxes and monolights. How do you get a Monarch butterfly into the studio? You raise them from an egg (or caterpillar). Fortunately, my daughter loves doing this and provides me with the subjects for shots such as this one. One of the big advantages to having a brand new butterfly is that the wings are void of any tattering. The Monarchs are released as soon as they can fly.
