Ignite Main Booster and Prepare for Liftoff

Newer Older

By accident I was able to capture the first movement in the first set of wings on this butterfly as it prepared to fly away.

Seen at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum in Tucson. There is a wonderful butterfly garden there. At this time of year there aren't too many butterflies, but if you are patient you will be rewarded.

    Splendida istantanea. Bello il contrasto tra il corpo immobile della butterfly ed il movimento delle ali!!!
