The Waiting Game

Today I noticed butterflies landing on a dandelion plant out in the front yard as I was coming into the house. So I went into the house and got my tripod and camera with a macro lens mounted on it. I plopped myself down on the ground next to the little flower. Then it was just a matter of playing the waiting game. I prefocused the camera on the dandelion and just waited. After about five minutes the butterfly came by for a sip of nectar and I got my image. I played the game a few more times setting the camera at different angles until I created the one I like. The game had a satisfactory outcome in my opinion.

God's blessings to all,
