A close-up macro image of a Queen Butterfly (Danaus gilippus) with folded wings, seen from the side, feeding on a group of yellow wildflowers. Focus is on the beautiful white polka-dotted thorax, orange and black-striped hind wings, and the flower the butterfly feeds upon. The spotted fore wings of the Queen slowly fade out of focus and merge into a soft background of green grasses and yellow wildflowers.
