Inspired by Cee’s Flower of the Day
Our second day at the Shelburne Museum was blessed with sunshine, warm temperatures and…flowers…everywhere I looked.
Camera in hand, I staked out butterflies at the Owl Cottage Garden with its glorious path of zinnias.
I sat on the steps and waited.
Another visitor with a macro lens had just had success, so I kept the faith. Tiptoeing next to collections of oranges, reds, yellows, purples….I spotted it.
The lone butterfly I hoped to capture (in a photo that is) appeared.
I assumed it was a real butterfly. It wasn’t as colorful as the ones I had seen the day before. But it cooperated…and gave me time to focus.
Does anyone know the name of this butterfly?
