This Monarch butterfly appears to be about to land. This photo was submitted by Benjamin Vogt of Monarch Gardens, a Nebraska-based consulting company that promotes native plants in gardening. Sadly, butterflies like the Monarch are impacted by a loss of habitat, but incorporating native plant species into your garden can help them.
