Sometimes you just are in awe of the photo you take and when you are looking and lining it up you get so excited because the background is just what you were seeking , the butterfly stands still for a moment
and although it is so so hot you are so so excited with your camera.

Beautiful photo!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

thank you ....they are always moving and blurred in photos..
This yellow eastern tiger swallowtail is the only butterfly that may stay still for a second
others moving contantly in the hot sun...fanning themselves I guess..
