Light Catcher

This monarch butterfly photobombed my shot of this Joe Pye weed along the Blue Ridge Parkway… butterflies are such divas. This one and another butterfly that flew too near would occasionally rise up into the air and spar with each other in an awkward butterfly way, only to drop back down to where they were to begin with. Apparently, they were jealous over what kinds of goodies these wildflowers had to offer. In my mind, I imagined a closeup of their scuffle along with dramatic music and sound effects of flying little insect fists connecting loudly… yes, I’m easily amused.
