Realize Your Potential

~ Realize Your Potential ~

Everyone has inside of him a piece of good news. The good news is that you don't know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is!

I'm going with monarch based on him not having a cross bar on his wing.

Kerri
I'm sure it's a Monarch. The coloring is lighter, and the white spots on the bottom of the hind wing are more numerous than the Viceroy.
Have a super day.

It's beautiful... I'm not an expert in butterfly analysis but I will just revel in its glory.

Beautiful butterfly.

happyone said...

I think it is beautiful and I would say a Monarch too.

Hi Kerri,
It's a monarch as the hind wing doesn't have the added black line that crosses over the beautiful pattern on viceroys. ;-)

Your EG Tour Guide said...

OH! I forgot to say I think the photo is very good!

Ms. Math said...

I have no idea whether it's a monarch or viceroy, but I do know that it's a wonderful photo! Great work!

Lara said...

I think your macro shots are fantastic.

Dianne said...

He's a beauty by either name :)

Heidi said...

Either way... beautiful photo, Kerri!

dot said...

I'm no good at naming flowers, birds, or butterflies. It's a beauty whatever it is!

Kahshe Cottager said...

I am betting on Monarch because I believe it is on a milkweed plant. Either way, it sure is an excellent photo!

Whoever he is, he's gorgeous! But I'll go with the majority and say he's a Monarch!

DeeMom said...

WOW what a shot

Faye Pekas said...

I love both versions but I especially like the enhanced one.

Perfect pose for you :)

Andrea said...

Beautiful butterfly.

Ash said...

Gorgeous macro, Kerri!

Hilary said...

It doesn't matter.. it's a beauty! I was graced by ones presence and kindness to sit still for a photo recently too. It's quite the thrill, eh? Great shot!

RuneE said...

The most important thing: It is a beauty!

John Theberge said...

Lovely picture of the monarch. I'm glad you enjoyed my chicory photograph from yesterday.

MedaM said...

I don't know of what kind this butterfly is but I really love these creatures. This one on your photo is lovely with its beautiful decorated wings that mathces nicely with the background colour. I really like the whole composition of the photo!

Mary said...

Monarch...no line across the hind wing. I had to look it up because I forgot which one had the line and which one didn't :-)

Willard said...

Kerri-That's a beautiful shot! I too will vote for it being a monarch!

Anita Bower said...

You are getting in close to your subject, which is most effective! Very nice photo.

Paul Nichols said...

Monarch.

I took some similar photos today when I was out walking. Moths. Gonna post them in a few days or so.

You done real good here. Real good.

Paulie said...

Beautiful, just beautiful! The only butterfly I can identify is the Tiger Swallowtail. lol
