Butterfly

I photographed a fairly large butterfly in Nova Scotia because it was brightly coloured and stayed still long enough for me to get a couple of photos. This one was feeding on a wild flower called knapweed. We saw only one butterfly like this in the 6 km we hiked.

After looking at several butterfly sites on the Internet, I think it may be a monarch butterfly. If there are butterfly enthusiasts on the list, you may be able to verify the species of butterfly.

Anyone on the list who have been photographing butterflies are invited to send the photos to mqpphotos@gmail.com to be added to our International Photography Gallery (www.mqp.k12.nf.ca/photos). Our Grade 1 students study butterflies and we would love to build our image collection. If you send your photos to the above address, our students may use them in school projects
