2011/147: Butterfly, Take 1

This little beauty was very brave and let me get within inches with the camera, and didn’t fly away. Of course the secret is to move very slowly.

  1. Nice capture. Reminds me of the cartoons with Elmer Fudd…”be very, very quiet”

  6. It’s obviously sunbathing!! And therefore too relaxed to even be bothered by you… πŸ˜‰

  7. Beautiful. We have those little guys and gals here too.

    I’m beginning to think the secret of all photography is to move very, every slowly. But I could be wrong. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, Robin.
      Well, it depends…. with kids you might have to move very, very fast! πŸ˜‰

  8. You got that right. We are so YOUNG people wonder how it’s possible we could be grandmothers. πŸ˜€
