Butterfly Sunshine

What would a butterfly quote, on looking in the mirror? It would say, “the adventure was worth it!”
— Manali Oak

As promised, here’s the last of the three butterfly shots I unexpectedly came upon a few evenings back. Like the photos in the last two posts, it’s a significant crop of the original image. In fact, you might notice it looks a whole lot like yesterday’s composition, altered at capture by 1/200th of a second and a ray of sunlight. I like the rich yellow — dare I say buttery — backdrop created at this exposure by the yellow flowers under heavy bokeh/shallow depth of field.
