Baited Butterfly

Yesterday afternoon I set up a small yellow flower in a drinking glass. Then I carefully placed several drops of sugar water onto the blossom. I set up my camera and tripod close by and I prefocused my camera onto the flower head. Within minutes I had butterflies sipping nectar from the flower.This image of a Mylitta Crescent was my favorite. What a great way to spend the afternoon. God's blessings to all, chris Camera Equipment Used- Canon 7D, Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM Lens,with an extension tube, Manfrotto 055XPROB Tripod with a Bogen 3055 Ballhead.
