Gulf Fritillary flight

Taking an image of a butterfly or one in flight is one of my passions. No one ever sees what it looks like. I work with visually impaired patients and never realized they have never seen a butterfly. A recent patient comment was," all my life I have heard about butterflies but had never seen one until now. “ We take so much beauty for granite.
