I noticed that my Marigolds have been attracting honey bees, some butterflies and the usual beetles and I thought it would be nice if I could capture one of the butterflies up close. I mean I could approach them and get close enough if I had a camera with me. I thought I could fetch my camera, put on the macro lens and get a few close ups.
The butterflies suddenly disappeared or flew off when I approached them camera in hand. They must be camera shy. So here’s a close-up pic of some of my Marigolds instead. Maybe I can sneak up on the butterflies later.
