Monarch Danaus plexippus

Description

This is a terrible, out-of-focus pic of a Monarch, but it was a very curious moment: There was a modest concentration of Monarchs migrating through the Uvalde area this day. This particular Monarch, i.e. the one on the right, just landed on an available perch on this black willow tree. The "perch" was actually one of his fellow Monarchs which had been captured in the web of a big fat orb weaver spider. You can make out the earlier Monarch victim, rolled up in silk, and with some imagination, you can make out the orb weaver which was making a meal of that first Monarch. I didn't stick around to see if the 2nd Monarch met a similar fate!

Description from Wikipedia

Nymphalidae is the largest family of butterflies with about 6,000 species distributed throughout most of the world. These are usually medium sized to large butterflies. Most species have a reduced pair of forelegs and many hold their colourful wings flat when resting. They are also called brush-footed butterflies or four-footed butterflies. Many species are brightly colored and include popular species such as the emperors, admirals, tortoiseshells, and fritillaries. However, the underwings are in contrast often dull...
