Description

This butterfly was frequenting this bush and landed in a similar pose earlier - but I wasn't ready to take the photo. Hoping he would come back, he did and I was in the best angle to take the shot with the sun behind his wings as well - the "keeper shot" of the day. Seeing that he landed and left in a matter of about 10 seconds (not exactly "basking" very long...), I felt fortunate to have obtained this image, particularly as I have never successfully captured a worthwhile photo of a butterfly in the past.
