16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A butterfly standing on top of a flower.

I absolutely love butterflies and always try to take photos of them when I see them. I was looking at a designated pollinator garden and this butterfly landed right in front of me. He stayed on the flower long enough that I was able to snap a photo before he flew off to the next flower.
