Artist's Description

I photographed this butterfly inside a butterfly pavilion at a Southern California botanical garden. (The pavilion was an outdoor enclosure with walls and roof of fine metal screen. Breezes and sun were not blocked.) This lovely creature is a pale swallowtail drinking from a thistle flower. Note the butterfly’s proboscis plunged into the blossom in search of nectar. (Zuiko 70-300mm zoom, f/6.3, 1/400 sec., ISO 100, late morning sun, handheld)

Selected for “Imagined Realities” Art Exhibition at PS Zask Gallery in Rancho Palos Verdes, California (May 11 to June 26, 2013); framed print sold.

Featured in Love These Creatures (5 March 2014)
