Butterfly Catnip

Butterfly Weed attracts the butterflies even before they become butterflies. This Monarch caterpillar was enjoying its dining on this tiny blossom. When Mother Nature provides the subject, the color, the background and the composition...all we have to do is release the shutter. Ahhh...don't we wish it was that simple.

 

(Nuts and bolts: This image was cropped to precisely 8x10 -- excluding the drop shadow -- for framing with stock materials. The head...or is it the tail, I can never be certain...is at exactly the intersection point of the horizontal and vertical thirds in the lower right corner. Sometimes the long established 'rules' of photography actually are right.)
