I was walking past this blooming alfalfa field on a breezy, autumn morning when I realized there were dozens of Monarch Butterflies flitting among the fragrant blossoms. I proceeded to spend the next hour wandering about the field with the butterflies. Of all the photos I snapped, this one, with the sun behind the butterfly, illuminating its wings, is the one that best illustrates the magic of the morning.
