Sometimes You Have to Get Out

I took a short drive away from my house with its parched reconstructed prairie and very sparse butterflies, to a boat ramp (Lincoln access) near Saylorville Reservoir today.  There were more butterflies there today–mostly three species, the dainty sulfur, the little yellow, and the common checkered skipper, although I did see a monarch and a couple of viceroys as well.

I got a couple of photos of dainty sulfurs that I liked:


This is sort of the conventional photo.


This was a near miss.  A little more in focus and it would have been spectacular.  Not quite there, but fun anyway.
