Rescued Queen

Found this Queen butterfly (Danaus gilippus) in the water in the outdoor tub, alive, with one wing wet/sunburned, unable to escape. I got her out of the tub but didn’t think she’d survive with what seemed to be some serious wing damage. Rested, she flew away from our improvised butterfly sanctuary after a short stay.
