Default Monarch Butterfly

I went to the Coyote Hill Regional Park today with a friend to check out the drought situation there. It is bad and much worse than I 'd expected. All the ponds that I can see are dried out. There were no waterfowls of any kind and very few tree birds except a few Juncos. The only thing I got today is this picture of a Monarch Butterfly.

Thanks, Marcelo! This was one and only for that day.

Nice shot. Some days I can go out and take 1,000 shots and get nothing and other days, like yours, not see much but get one good shot.

Thanks, Scott! Getting one picture is definitely better than none. This drought we have here in California is killing me. It completely destroys the habitat in Coyote Hill Regional Park which I used to go a lot.
