Caught a Butterfly! ...On Camera

Some Sightseeing Over Memorial Day Weekend

I don't know how many times I thank my lucky stars that I grew up surrounded by THIS stuff!

I was casually snapping some landscape shots when this little bugger flew by. The area was teeming with these guys. I believe they're swallowtails.

This one was collecting nectar! I waited for it to get closer. I couldn't get any closer, because what you can't see is a very tall drop about 4 feet in front of me. I do love a little bit of danger in my photography! A healthy amount only, of course.

I saved the best for last. This one is definitely my favorite.
