If you've ever watched butterflies, I'm sure you've seen them "buzz" each other. They usually fly around together for a minute and then go their separate ways. I was shooting one monarch tonight when another "buzzed" it right during the shot.

I'd been watching these for a couple of weeks, but never saw one land until tonight

The first one reminds me of a picture I took. I was trying to take 2 bird of paradises that were not next to each other, so I was stopping down the lens as much as I thought I could get away with, and trying for a fairly long shutter speed. Just as I was about to push the shutter, a hummingbird popped up. I caught it in flight, but the shutter speed was way too slow, and the picture had a bit of camera shake. Oh well, it's still one of my favorites.

The other butterflies are (as usual, sigh) wonderful. And I'd LOVE to see an early fall this year, but I doubt it - our hottest weather is often September.
