First Butterfly Photo of the Year

I got my first butterfly photo of the year today.  Here it is:

It was a pretty underwhelming picture of a pearl crescent.  I have not seen pearl crescents this year until today, and they seem fairly thick now.  I chased a number of them around, trying to get a better shot.

I did not quite get the angle that had the eye and the wing both in focus for this shot, but I got close.  I need to keep trying.  Still, I like this shot.
