The Monarch

The Monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) is a milkweed butterfly (subfamily Danainae), 
in the family Nymphalidae.

It was not quite a bitter cold winter time - compared to temps on the north at that time. In 2009, I think is when I found this Monarch butterfly and for sure, it had flown it's last flight, has pollinated it's last flower and laid at the ledge outside the building of our office; but the creature has not lost it's kingly beauty. 

I took him home to his final resting place, to consummate it's reprieve and be admired by those who would visit it's grave... inside a frame.
