The butterfly was pollinating a false Dandelion wildflower ....I zoomed in on this shot yesterday which I like to do in the woods if there are too many thistles and weeds in spots to easily walk any closer! Sometimes it is not as easy to get a close up of a butterfly when using macro as they tend to get more nervous and flighty of any movement and it would have been long gone especially if I had thrashed through the weeds to get closer.....The painted Lady Butterfly who landed on the wooden plank in front of my feet a few days ago however didn't get flighty because I didn't make any sudden moves so that I was able to shoot a few macro shots. It depends on the situation.

Best View in light Box! Thank you!!!
