13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Red Spotted Purple

While watering the plants this red spotted purple was flying around. There had been no rain in some time so he was thirsty. He was looking for a drink of water. I ran in and grabbed my camera hoping the butterfly would land and I could get a shot of him.
