A Monarch finds solace in rough weather

xDSC_0597

It’s been super-windy and rainy on Oahu lately and this Monarch Butterfly had a real hard time coming in for a landing. The gusts kept blowing him back and shaking the flower blossoms but after several failed approaches he finally touched down and remained long enough to be photographed. We see Monarchs from time to time in urban Honolulu but rarely see them in large groups like on some other islands.
