Last of the week. Since I am in a habit of using the butterfly somewhere in many of my montage images thought I would present them in all their glory as a straight shot or two or three.
Have a great holiday weekend and stay safe

I spent ages chasing butterflies at Auchwitz last week and failed miserably (which rally upset me because of where I was).

Wish I could capture just one as well as you have

Thanks folks.
Roy they were taking in a butterfly farm just outside Niagara Canada and it was so blistering warm inside I'm sure they were all comatose so it was not that difficult to get in real close.
