Butterfly In Flowers

It’s that time again—magazine deadline day draws near. So, after spending all day at my computer editing and proofing it was time to step outside for a well-deserved break. With the late afternoon sun finally breaking through the puffy clouds, there was ample light to work with. In my mind I really wanted to find something other than macro and nature to shoot, so as I embarked on a walk I searched for inspiration in patterns and some fresh subjects.

Unfortunately, my plan didn’t work. Nothing really caught my eye until I spotted a patch of purple flowers with waving grasses in the background. As I approached, I noticed the many tiny butterflies working the blooms, fluttering from flower to flower. Even though I didn’t have a macro lens on my camera, I thought I’d spend a few minutes shooting since the backlighting was so pretty. As I was setting up, a butterfly landed on the flower in front of me. I quickly took a couple of photos before it flew off. At the end of the day, those few shots were my favorites. I really wanted to break out of my routine today, but sometimes you just have to let nature take its course.

  1. This is beautiful photograph, dear Tricia, but what I liked most in this photograph, the rings of the butterfly, so nice and so impressive shot… Thank you, have a nice day, with my love, nia
