Long Live The King

I chased this freshly emerged Monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) all over a field full of golden rod the other day.  He would not open his wings long enough for a good photograph of the dorsal side.  When he did flutter his wings, they were very bright orange and had no damage that would be common in older butterflies.
