Mating Monarchs, Joliet, IL, USA by Sandra Rust

Mating Monarchs clicked on July 20th 2021, Joliet IL. I was just about to go home after visiting a local forest preserve, and then last minute I decided to go over by the flower garden. An awesome Trumpet vine caught my eye, and then to the right were these 2 Monarch Butterflies mating. The light was divine with a spotlight effect through the shadows of the tree branches, spilling beautiful soft light onto them ...and always amazed to find clicks so unexpectedly.
