Monarch on its Bush

Monarch butterfly on a butterfly bush (Buddleja sp.).

We had a power outage this morning, which extended from my workplace all the way to my home on the edge of south park.  Power didn't return until sometime after 1:00 p.m. 

I thought I'd drag my camera out of mothballs (so to speak).  On a lark, I thought I'd try the Canon EF-S 70-200mm f/4L telephoto lens on an extension tube again.  This monarch butterfly in front of my neighbor's yard was the only salvageable shot, I'm afraid.  Besides the difficulties in focusing on a moving macro target, I had also neglected to attach the sun shade tube.  Lens flare was a real problem.
