This past summer I had a butterfly experience.

In fact…a massive butterfly experience. As a photographer, I had never been this up close and personal with so many butterflies. As I was to find out, butterfly bushes are instrumental in attracting these beautiful – and elusive – quick-to-fly-away insects.

At first I was drawn to the bushes themselves…

But, after filling the frame, I got the scene I wanted.

A butterfly resting at (almost) center stage, highlighted against its signature flowers…

More recently, I found a patch of ferns in varying degrees of Autumn decay tucked behind a wire fence…

But on closer inspection…I uncovered an entirely different perspective.

A dance of textures and shades of green plus brown.

Decay?

Not so much.
