Town: Dauphin island State/Province: AL Country: United States
We found the butterfly sleeping on top of the sand near the pier. After we were headed back from floundering walking up the beach we thought at first it was a moth. After closer inspection we could clearly see it was a majestic orange and black monarch butterfly! As I reached down to pick him up, he fluttered a little and flew away. Last weekend I saw two of them near the same area but thought my eyes were playing tricks on me.
