Monarch on Goldenrod

Jones Beach, NY

- This photo was taken with a Pentax Optio A20 (point-and-shoot) on a VERY WINDY day at Jones Beach. It was quite difficult to capture a somewhat still instance of the butterfly on the flower. Also, for some reason, the butterflies were very aware of my presence and took off whenever I approached.(unusual) I had to sneak very low and carefully up on them and hope that the wind would subside for a few seconds.
