Monarch butterfly, Danaus plexippus. This Monarch Butterfly was reaching in to sip some nectar out of a hanging basket of Lantana at Armstrong Nursery. I ran back to the car to get the camera and waited a bit for the Monarch to come back. Shortly afterwards, it was joined by a Tiger Swallowtail. I enjoyed watching them flit from flower to flower so much I ended up buying a small pot of Lantana for the front yard.
