A Satisfying Butterfly Capture

A butterfly floats near our kumquat bush.

As I’ve documented before, butterflies baffle and bedevil my photographic efforts. They tend to flit and float just fast enough to make it impossible to focus on them and capture their beauty.

But I got lucky yesterday! I watched a swallowtail butterfly dance and dart around our kumquat bush in the backyard. As I admired it, I thought it was useless to go grab my Nikon dSLR and try to snap a photo. But it kept tantalizing me, so I figured what the heck?

Thank you, kumquats!

Look who caught lightning in a bottle!
