Beck what you have here is not a monarch. Monarch sightings are rare in Britain. It is in the same family, danaus, but I think what you have here is a danaus chrysippus.

The monarchs are currently flying from their home in Mexico, making their way to Canada. My milkweed plants are being eaten to the nubs by the caterpillars - hopefully it will be a good year for the species as their numbers have been reduced greatly the past years.

Nicely captured.

The detail and colours in this macro are simply glorious. I think you are correct regarding the id Becky, it was taken in a Butterfly farm and not in the wild!Wink

Happy to see African included in the ID - or did you have that initially, and I missed it? This is of course danaus chrysippus and I've just learned from a friend that it is also referred to as the Plain Tiger - I rather like that it's a monarch Smile

Have a great day Becky.

I added African after looking it up again, yes I saw it is also referred to as a Plain Tiger. Thanks for the tip on the identity Grin
