Woodland Butterfly

I found this brown butterfly as it rested on a flower today in a Southwest Michigan forest. It was nice to see the weather warm enough for butterflies to be flittering about again.

    Delightful photograph. You capture the moment perfectly. I love the colour contrast: brown butterfly on pinky-orange bud.

    Lovely capture.

    Lovely…but I am shocked that the ad was covering part of the photo. I have never seen an ad do that (yet)

    So very beautiful… There’s so much details in its wings. I love how the flower seems to float in the air. Did you took the photo handheld ? If you did you have a steady hand, more than mine :)

      Thanks Jocelyne :) Yes, hand held, but I often have to raise the ISO in order to have a shutter speed fast enough to compensate for any movement of the lens. I think this was shot at 1/1,250 of a second with a longer lens :)
