Against the Wind

Cool August days with puffy clouds are absolutely gorgeous.  I love being out in them.  But often they are windy, and wind does not help the butterfly photography.


The wind doesn’t help the butterflies, either.  This viceroy was fighting the wind.  I wanted a photo of it holding its wings upright and vertical.


This was the closest I came to that.  This monarch mimic was resting on the leaf of common milkweed.


Mostly it just hunkered down against the wind.

    Good to see how butterflies cope in different weather condition, it makes for some interesting images too.
