Altered States: Monarch Butterfly

This past spring we planted some milkweed in our garden. The purpose was to attract some monarch butterflies.Alas, we did not attract many to the milkweed.

However, I did manage to get a picture of this guy at the Botanical Garden when I was there the past week.

This photo was taken by me with a Nikon Z7 mirrorless camera.

The final image was cropped close (above main image)and is the final stage for my "Altered States" look. It is best viewed on a larger screen.

Thank you for checking out this post and looking at my photograph and illustration. Let me know what you think!

Until next time, with big love from me...
