Monarch Butterfly in Slow Motion

Earlier this week we captured a video of a Monarch butterfly fluttering through the Joe Pye Weed in the West Island Garden. This beauty was flying so fast, we had to use the slow motion feature on our camera to catch a good glimpse of all that gorgeous orange magnificence. We thought you might enjoy seeing it too — here you go!
