Butterfly

If I say that butterflies are skittish that would be an understatement. Mostly I chase and don’t get an opportunity to get a shot. And then every once in a while I have an opportunity to shoot all I want. It happened that way one spring day in Maine. This one just sat and posed. I’m so used to a brief moment to get the shot that I was at a loss to do when it didn’t fly away.

  1. Beautiful shot! Such clarity on the entire, er, swallowtail? It’s been some time since I’ve seen such beauty up close.

    • I know. I’m not big on naming. I know it’s not a monarch.
