Butterfly or Dragon

She reminds me of one of Dany’s Dragons. That could be because I just finished watching the latest episode of Game of Thrones (and audibly gasped as I watched the last 30 seconds). Can you see it?

I think this is a white sulfur butterfly (please correct me if I’m wrong). It just might be my favorite because it’s low-key. It doesn’t advertise its presence with brilliant colors or rapid movements; it simply goes about its life, doing its job without creating much of a fuss.

When a friend suggested that a local butterfly atrium would be great place to take pictures, I was eager. Knowing how difficult it is to take shots of butterflies, I figured this would be the perfect place for me to practice. I was at Butterfly Wonderland yesterday before it opened its doors at 9 AM and did not leave until after 1 PM. I was captivated. I sat and absorbed the quiet beauty, I watched people in their delight at the exquisite creatures, and I took hundreds of shots. It was a wonderful day!

Here are a few of my shots. Do you have a favorite?
