Sometimes you just have to be fast (as well as in the right place at the right time). I saw this Pearly Crescent fluttering around and thought to myself, even though I have lots of pics of Pearly Crescents, if it lands on that Sunflower I will take the shot. It did, and my camera was half way up. I had to back off on the zoom for the framing. I got the shot only a second before the butterfly moved on. Sometimes you just have to be fast.
This is another shot from my Saturday, electric scooter powered, photoprowl at the Kennebunk Plains. The Sunflowers were growing wild down at the pond on Nature Conservancy property on the back edge of the Plains, where I also found a few dragonflies.
