This little butterfly made me work! I was out shooting something else (of course) when this little flash of yellow flew by. It was a butterfly I had never photographed!

The chase was on. 🙂

Through the thickets, over piles of wood, into deep shade and then back into bright sunshine. At times, I barely had a chance to raise the lens and focus when he was off fluttering again.

He landed for a moment and as I was getting in really close (shooting as I went), he lifted and disappeared into the ether. Poof!

Oh, well. Now that I know he is in the area, I will definitely keep an eye out!
