Description


This Blue Morpho graciously posed for me on this lovely red flower during the Butterflies Go Free exhibit at the Montreal Botanical Gardens. Unfortunately, neither tripods nor monopods are allowed, so I was lucky that she sat still long enough for me to get a clear shot. I actually had to sit on the floor and brace one arm against a nearby rock and the other on my knee...
