bug of the day
This is how nature photography works: You spend years chasing butterflies, stalking them, trying to sneak up on them, but somehow they always sense your presence and fly away. Then one day when you've given up entirely on butterfly macro shots, you'll be searching for something else and suddenly realize that not only are you standing directly over a butterfly, but it's not going anywhere!
Nice monarch, eh? :-D
