Monarch Butterfly with a Torn Hole in its Wing

Monarch butterfly photographed by Jeff Zablow at Raccoon Creek State Park, PA

One of my most prized images! She is feasting on teasel flowers and she is fine, so fine!

But what’s happened to her right hindwing? Something, some animal has torn a sizable hole in it.

I’ve gone through challenges in my life and had begun bucking myself up for a family health crisis at the time. This photo came to stick in my mind as ‘Life is tough.’

Our monarch butterfly is so exquisite and yet is now no longer near perfect.

Ponder this. How long will it take for our Monarch to repair this wing tear?
