My DH and I saw one of these out in the woods behind our house while we were out picking mustang grapes but the stripes came all the way down the wing, but it was beautiful. I thought it was a tiger swallowtail but if it is not a monarch I'm not that great with butterflies lol. Thank you for showing I was right.

I'm glad I joined this group. I was just out in the field trying to get a pic of a Hawk sitting at the edge of the woods. When this little guy lit on some thistle. I was going to search Google for it. But it's right here already. Thanks Njoynit.

This time of year we birders switch over to butterflies and other insects when the birds go dormant due to the heat.
