Butterfly strikes a pose

The photograph captures very closely a beautiful butterfly resting on a leaf. It was taken while I was walking by a path that leads to the amazing Azeda beach, Buzios, RJ, Brazil. Surprisingly, the butterfly stood very still even with the mobile standing really close. It really felt like she was posing for the photo.
