[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This Monarch was photographed at Waterfall Gardens, a preserve close to Psoas Volcano. There is a butterfly enclosure where they raise many species of butterflies. There are whole walls covered with various cocoons and larvae hatching.

In addition to the butterfly enclosure there is one where they raise tree frogs as well. Was a very fascinating place to visit if you are in the San Jose area.

The brownish blemishes on the background are distracting. Most probably they appeard when you tuned the picture in photoshop. Still ince shot:))
