So, as we made our way through the closing weekend of the butterfly exhibit at Khron Conservatory, Ava and I heard someone squeal, “Look! they are mating!!!”. Sure enough, two beautiful butterflies were sandwiched together end to end, hanging from an artificial flower that another patron was holding. Everyone is given an artificial flower upon entering, it’s easier to get the butterflies to light on them for closer inspection. This lady holding the frisky pair hit the jackpot! I leaned in carefully and took a shot. I don’t think I disturbed their romantic interlude. They were far too enraptured with each other!

The world is full of magical photo ops…

All you need to grab them is a zest for life, an eye for the extraordinary and that trusty camera of your choice.

Raise the sturdy weight of it to your face … close one eye then … lower your finger upon the shiny black button… hold your breath then… hear that hypnotic click and suddenly, dynamite explodes! the stars collide! and maybe, just maybe you’ve captured a magnificent moment in time… How thrilling is that?!?
