Monarch butterfly in the night

midsize thumbnail

I was standing outside in the night, when out of the black comes a gorgeous monarch butterfly. I've never seen a butterfly at night before. This one kept flying around me and several lights. I captured it and kept it in a thin plastic sleeve for the night, and released it in the morning.
