Is there anything more magical than seeing a butterfly float on the air currents and then land on a colorful flower? Butterflies are so unique and add so much to the landscape that many of us plant special flowers in hopes that one might visit our gardens. I have been photographing butterflies for years and on occasion the experience has changed me. My best photos have come when I slowed down enough to enter the butterfly’s world and did not rush in and try to “steal” a quick shot. As you work through this quiz, look closely at the photos and you may feel the butterfly’s presence that I felt when I took the shot.
