Butterfly landing on my husband's workboots.

Butterflies were everywhere around my house the summer of 2016. I kept my mobile phone camera ready to take a picture of these beautiful creatures. I took many pictures over the summer and often it seemed these colorful butterflies posed for my shots. I especially liked this shot contrasting the beauty and fragility of the butterfly and the roughness of the work boots.
