Butterfly
 
Ah, such a generic topic title, I know. But today was my first try at capturing butterflies and bees. This particular butterfly was quite large and had no problem with me being so close and shooting from different angles. This was taken earlier today in the yard at my parents' house. My dad keeps what he calls a natural area and he's got beautiful plants and nice landscaping which he does all himself.

Yes Melani, that's exactly why I posted it. The angle was different from the usual butterfly photo like this one:

I like both of them - but the first one is indeed different than you would expect.
