I photographed this monarch Sunday afternoon in the Native Pollinators' Garden next to the Somerville Community Path. We saw several monarchs in that garden yesterday, when it was sunny; this afternoon was overcast after rain.




I posted this last night, then removed it because I was hoping to shrink the image.
