Grounded

Although it was a little cooler than to be expected, I was surprised to see this butterfly not moving from this spot on the ground. It would flap its wings to stay balanced in the wind, but it did not fly off, even when I approached to within my lens' minimum focus distance.

 

It wasn't there later that day; either it finally flew off, or...was eaten by one of the infinite robins, crows, jays, or cats.
