I took this photo with my D200 and Nikon 105D macro lens. I scare the butterfly when I try to use Nikon 60 G macro lens. The extra magnification was very helpfull.

I only see the butterflies flying around the butterfly bush in the afternoon. I was out in the morning at 8am or 9 am and they were not around. It was over cast this morning. Any idea why they behave this way?

This afternoon the sun was incrediable strong and harsh. I could not stay outside two long with out getting burnt to a crisp.

Let me know how you like the image. It is challenging to capture a good image of a butterfly. They move very quickly.
