I love to photograph insects and although all insects are difficult to take pictures of, butterflies give me the most difficulty. Last year every single picture I got they were resting on a piece of poop! The poop really took away from the pretty butterfly so I scraped all of those. 

The warm weather has blessed us with a forest filled with gorgeous butterflies. They are still fast and like to land on not so nice areas. But one butterfly decided to pose nicely on a log and allow me to take it’s portrait. It landed right in front of me with it’s wing spread wide open. After the mini-shoot I was jumping with joy because I was so excited that I got amazing pictures!

If you are anxious you are living in the future

If you are at peace you are living in the present”
