Flight

Monarch butterflies begin to take flight from clusters on branches in a eucalytus grove, their winter home, Natural Bridges State Beach, Santa Cruz, California.

Photo note: The clusters were about 30 feet straight up partially obscured in the shade and required a maximum zoom on a 55-210mm lens (more zoom would have been ever better!)
