003: Big Butterfly

I didn’t get a butterfly the day before, but I saw one on this day. It was a beautiful big butterfly, but I discovered it’s extremely difficult to get a photo of a butterfly while they’re in flight and rather difficult to get a really nice one while they’re landed.

It’s a nice practice in patience and perseverance trying to get a photo of subjects like these.
