Western Kingbird

I took this photo at the Coronado Butterfly Preserve, near Santa Barbara, California, in February, 2012, at a time when a huge number of monarch butterflies were gathered there. Although I've heard that most birds do not try to eat monarchs, I observed several western kingbirds – like the one shown here – catching monarchs in mid-air, and then eating them.
