Queen - Danaus gilippus - male

Queen - Danaus gilippus - Male
June 6, 2004
This photograph was taken at the Huntsville Botanical Gardens in Huntsville, AL. Because the Gardens introduce butterfly species to the gardens, I am leaving the geographic information blank. This picture submitted for species identification purposes instead. This Queen is alit on Scarlet Milkweed (asclepias curassavica).
