This photograph super-charged my eyes and rocked my mind! It was early morning in the Butterflies & Blooms Briar Patch Habitat in Eatonton, Georgia, Virginia’s in-town miracle. I do especially like Viceroy butterflies, and I’m always on the lookout for an extraordinary one. This photo shot me to the moon, it did. Why?
- Our Viceroy butterfly star here posed on its hostplant, in excellent form, long enough for me to cop many images, and super-like this one.
- This was a Macro- shot, me having to be very very close, and he/she allowed me to close the space between us.
- The colors it wore are so very sweet, reminding me of those many many visits to the finest of the jewelry houses in NYNY back then. G-d here shares colors that Cartiers must quietly . . . envy
- Viceroys prefer habitat near much water, the B & Blooms Briar Patch Habitat had willows, but little water, so why were we so blessed with this visit?
- Every aspect of this Viceroy butterfly is gorgeous. You slowly scan it and more and more finery is seen.
- My dearly departed wife, Frieda A”H loved fine jewelry, and as I stood at this beauty, it so evoked for me memories of how . . . .
- My goals remain the same: Chief among them is to score images as good as or better than those in the best of the Butterfly field guides. I did that here, I’d like to say.
- Why? Why? was I so fortunate to be there, at this place, at this time, enabling me to meet such Beauty! A moment earlier or a moment later and . . . . Will of the Wisp they used to call it.
- I suspected then, that if I could capture the essence of this magnificent creature, that some whom I much respect would be pleased, and would say so. That is the wind to my sails. You do it for me.
