As a child — or even as an adult — there’s nothing more enchanting than a butterfly. With their bright colours and delicate nature, they make for amazing photo subjects.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many monarch butterfly researchers are unable to do their annual fieldwork across North America to learn more about the insects. Instead, they’re asking for help through the International Monarch Monitoring Blitz, where people across North America can study the monarch butterflies in their own area and submit their findings to help research.

In honour of the International Monarch Monitoring Blitz, here are ten of our favourite monarch photos, courtesy of the Canadian Geographic Photo Club:
