I've been spotting monarchs lately, but haven't caught any photos until today!

The first paused up in a tree. I was surprised I could get a clear shot.

The second monarch is injured. I couldn't see that its wing was torn, but I could tell it was hurt by the way it was flapping its wings on the ground, trying and failing to fly. It did eventually take off, but it landed again soon after.

Bonus: a from farther down the trail.

Now that I've had more time to look through the photos from this hike, I like this wider crop of the first shot.
