Butterfly at Rest by Anita Pollak

I had to dig deep into my archives for this image, which I want to enter in a butterfly challenge. It was taken back in 2007 at The Butterfly Place in my home town of Westford, Mass. with my D80 and 60mm macro lens. Even though it’s just a few miles from my house, I haven’t been back to the Butterfly Place in years. I had a problem with lenses fogging up due to the higher humidity inside, so I haven’t wanted to risk that problem again.
