Orange Butterfly Sitting Still

by Blanca Stella on May 22, 2010

orange butterflyI was so excited to finally get a close up picture of this beautiful orange butterfly. It is one of the butterflies that come from an orange and black caterpillar on my passion vine.  They flitter about so quickly zipping all over the place and high up in the air that by the time I get my camera, they are out and about somewhere else. What is so beautiful about these butterflies is that one the underside, they have these white specs, and when their wing span is open, you mainly see the black specs.

I love that we are in Spring because I see so many butterflies coming out again. My computer is a few feet away from the door that leads out to the yard and luckily I have some big windows where every now and then I can dash out and snap a picture.

Thank you. They move so fast that usually the picture comes out blurry. So I was happy to catch that moment.
