Ah - I just took my first butterfly shots yesterday, most didn't come easy. People seem to want to poke their fingers at the poor butterflies and hope they'll perch. Unfortunately there were more people around than were comfortable for me while I was shooting.

Nice shot - got any more butterflies to show us?
