Not a Butterfly

By IamDora
I took the garbage to the curb and on the way back there was a huge black butterfly in the flowers. Off to get the camera, only to realize the card was still in the laptop. Ejected the card, got it in the camera and then had an argument with the camera as to whether or not it actually had a card inserted. Of course by that time the butterfly was long gone.
But this little lizard was basking in the morning sun and he was better than nothing.

Although butterflies can be lovely this isn't so common and very interesting to see. Great details Dora.

Excellent capture.

The size that butterfly was, there should be a wing tip sticking out somewhere.

If only he had wings, Dora....then you would have something that even Glenn Conant would envy.....

The version is amazing....my award for the version.

He is lovely Dora. He makes up for the disappointment over the butterfly.

A lovely set Dora a handsome little chap beautifully captured...Lin
Those are two impressive images Dora. Loved your narrative. It reminded me of the phrase ‘more haste, less speed’. He was worth missing the butterfly.

He looks content.
I followed a huge blue butterfly into a bush in Costa Rica but he outwitted me. He's not alone in that of course.

You really should not go into a bush in Costa Rica or your next line may be "But then the viper bit me .."
