A beautiful monarch butterfly flitted from one flower cluster to another.

The monarch shared this cluster with a bee (up top).

A smaller, brown-ish butterfly (or moth?) also flew around.  I couldn't identify it.

And a small unidentified black butterfly with orange on its wing joined the feast.
A Google search suggests it is a Red Admiral Butterfly (Vanessa atalanta).

That is indeed a Red Admiral, we have those here. No Monarchs though, apart from the Queen of course.

These are wonderful takes!

It seems to have been a good year for all of the butterflies, Jack!

Beautiful shots! I love seeing these creatures enjoying the sunshine and the flowers.
