I thought I was seeing things. The bee flew off.

The dark on the monarch’s right front wing is shadow from the flowers. It looked so unnatural.

The monarch looked just like it does in the picture. I’d never seen one so dark, and wondered if it was slightly melanistic.

The three small dark spots are insects flying to visit the sedums. They were a busy place!

The monarch flew to another clump of sedums after this picture.

  2. I’ve never seen one so dark. The color finding software that I use for color blindness sees red, brown and orange in the wings.
