19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Love on a leaf

I was walking in the jungle and I discovered a flower patch with many butterflies, suddenly I saw something flying in a funny way. It landed on a leaf and I got closer, I found out it was two tiny butterflies in their mating cycle. It was interesting to see the hard time they were having at flying together, generally one of them lead the flight while the other only can trust on it.
