One of the girls at camp called me over to take a shot if this Eastern Comma butterfly who landed on her homework.

The butterfly spent 20 minutes with us so I was able to patiently wait until she moved into this frame.

Taken in Kananaskis, Alberta, Canada

Nikon D60 | Lens Micro-Nikkor 105mm
f/8 | 1/60 | ISO 200
