ID Correction

The caterpillar I photographed a while back is a Queen, not a Monarch as I had originally thought. However I am certain the butterfly Ben and I watched lay eggs a few weeks back was a Monarch. Queens are closely related to Monarchs, but are darker and smaller. I've seen both species in abundance in my back yard and it's always fun photographing them.
