Beautiful shots of a handsome male. I hope he's finding lots of lovely ladies to hang out with. :D

Lovely pics, chico!

Hazel,how do you know it's a male???

See the black spots (one on the top of each hindwing)? The fems don't have that.

Hazel - you know everything!! Great pics Chico. I don't think I've seen any Monarch's out in BC since I've been here. Maybe they don't come this far West - Hazel?? I know we had them back East when I was a kid.

There is a small western population that winters on the west coast (California) somewhere. Here's a link about the migration routes...but they aren't very specific about where they overwinter or how far north they end up during summer: [URL="http://www.fs.fed.us/monarchbutterfly/migration/index.shtml"]http://www.fs.fed.us/monarchbutterfly/migration/index.shtml[/URL]

And I only knew about the patches cuz I went to the local nature reserve's kiddy show at their Butterfly House. :laughing:
