Caught - 34/52

An ecology professor from Iowa State University holds a monarch butterfly, one of several varieties of butterflies that inhabit the Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge. We went there to listen to the taping of a public radio talk show on prairie restoration efforts, and afterwards the expert guests took the audience on a walk to talk more about the plants, insects and wildlife that live on the prairie.


Oddly enough, this is the third "photo of the week" in a row I've done that involves a hand.
