Monarch (Danaus plexippus) - Danaus plexippus

Monarch (Danaus plexippus) - Danaus plexippus
Natural Bridges State Park, Santa Cruz County, California, USA
October 19, 2011
This one had it's right upper wing dislocated in front of the lower wing, after the photos I was able to get the wing back in place, a 6 year old young man put his finger out and it climbed from my to his hand, and off he went, which of course the Monarch took flight.
