A colleague at work sent me the following picture of a butterfly hovering over some lilacs at their weekend home in Tennessee. When I saw this, I got to thinking that maybe I could find some butterflies in my own gardens and take pictures of them!

Below is my first attempt. I had to improvise a little bit, because I didn't see any butterflies around when I wanted to take the picture.

Then I had to improvise quite a bit to get a butterfly where I wanted it.

And then I got the hang of it and realized I could capture a lot of butterflies at once in my picture!

Note: No actual butterflies were harmed, injured, or actually involved in the pictures I took. An actual real butterfly was involved in the first picture, but not harmed or injured!


  1. I believed you on the first one, but then you were overly obvious!
