Tim Scullion: Although butterflies do not keep their wings open after landing, this one had to keep his balance on a windy afternoon. He and the flowers were bobbing up and down but I was able to get this shot before he realized I was there and flew off. I like how the sunlight passes through the wings making them glow.
