18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Butterfly at Last

This is a photo of a butterfly resting. It took me several weeks to be able to capture this photo. Day after day I tried to get a photo of the lovely butterfly that came to my yard. This butterfly seemed to have a camera radar. It could detect when I had a camera in hand and would fly far away. Finally after weeks of trying the butterfly came to rest on the ground and did not fly away. Allowing me to take this photo.
