Could be if the top if its wings appeared to be more brown than the monarchs.

Very nice--the second one is exceptional with green palm fronds in the background.

Default queens or soldiers?

Beautiful butterfly photos, Sage. Since I have not seen Queens or Soldiers before, I could not decide, either.

I have been sick on and off for two weeks. First the flu, now a horrendous cold. I took off from school and am going to the doctor shortly.

I hope everyone here is doing well. I just wanted to drop by and let you all know I am still around!
