- Description: While on vacation, I captured this american beauty above Chasm Falls along Fall River Road.
I tried to compose the shot using the rule of thirds. The butterfly wings intersect at a top right third. The body of the insect runs fairly parallel to the right vertical third, the top of the left wing runs horizontal to the horizontal top third; and the blurred lighter vegetaion in the background pretty much follows the left vertical third.
- Gear: Canon digital rebel
