Hope for the Flowers : Butterflies

"How does one become a butterfly? They have to want to learn to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar."
— Trina Paulus (Hope for the Flowers)

I am totally hooked! Macro photography is so much fun; even if it means I have to get up early in the morning to get the best shots.

Here is a collection of butterfly shots I took last weekend. I wake up at around 6:30am just so I can take shots in the soft morning light. It’s not as colorful as most would expect but at least these species are endemic to the playground / park in front of our house. I think there are only four different species in this set and I hope to shoot more next time.

There are other critters that I shot during my early morning walks but I’ll save that for another time.
