Scottsdale, Arizona. A Monarch butterfly perches on flower head hunting for nectar. Colder winters are the cause the monarch butterfly population has seen record lows in the last few years. The United States Fish and Wildlife Service is contributing $20 million to help save the disappearing Monarch butterflies. The insect may be on its way to the endangered species list. In Arizona a sanctuary takes care of thousands of butterflies. Photo by Eduardo Barraza © 2015
