Static butterfly

Yesterday the butterflies were plentiful and active. Today there are fewer butterflies and they’re less active. This allowed for a closer shot than yesterday’s photographs. Photograph taken on Nikon D60.

Blue butterfly

The third decent photograph I captured today in my back yard—thank you social distancing and isolation?!—while the butterflies enjoyed the flowers and sunlight. Photograph taken on Nikon D60.

Orange butterfly

The second of three decent photographs captured today in my own backyard. Not being a butterfly/moth expert, I’m currently assuming this is a butterfly. Photograph taken on Nikon D60.

Trio of butterflies

It’s been a while since I pulled the camera out of the bag and today there were dozens of butterflies in the back yard. It was a beautiful sight to see while being confined to my own yard like most of the world currently. Photograph taken on Nikon D60.

Butterfly finally resting in a tree

Butterflies are tricky to photograph as they are always in motion. I managed to stick with one on a day that it took a small rest in a tree in our back yard.

Photograph taken sometime prior to 2005 when this image was originally uploaded to my Flickr account. Camera unknown.
