“You can chase a butterfly all over the field and never catch it. But if you sit quietly in the grass it will come and sit on your shoulder.”
And it couldn’t hurt to wear something very bright and to smell like a flower or something else that’s sweet. After some of the comments about the moving Morpho I thought, “Well why not!” about posting some other photos of mariposa movement. At first I thought these shots weren’t that hot because of the blur but maybe there is something to it that says….. well, you tell me. So here we have a few examples of butterflies either in flight, landing, or about to take off. Not as dramatic as the Morpho flying off into the sunset snickering but special in their own colorful way.
The first one was actually taking off when I did a series of shots on it but it almost looks like it is just there. The last one I am not sure if it was taking off or coming in for a landing and the guy in the middle was just fluttering away while flower hopping.
