I found this butterfly this morning when walking my dogs at the local football field.  It was on the ground, cold, damp and a bit slow…..I picked it up, placed it on my woolly sleeve where it could hang on, and brought it home, where I placed it on this Aquilegia flower.  I hope it is able to warm up and fly away…..

Taken with my Canon 550D and EF 100 mm 1:2.8 macro lens using a tripod.

  1. A kind deed rewarded with some rather nice poses for the camera.

  4. Very beautiful! Poor thing, she must ave been really cold, they usually are very hard to get more than one quick photograph.
    Great work!

    A great choice of flower for contrasting with the butterfly.
