I think we may have got one of the first monarch butterflies arriving to their Pacific Grove sanctuary for the winter. It landed in a garden next to the sanctuary and we could make a few shots of him (it seems like a male specimen). Its wings feature an easily recognizable orange and black pattern, with a wingspan of 8.9–10.2 cm.
