A beautiful orange butterfly posing on a leaf

At the Museum of Natural Science with my family, I was amazed to find this live butterfly display. As this butterfly floated around magically, I had to quickly change my lens from the family photo lens to get down to business quick lens, a Macro lens!! This beautiful butterfly happened to land on a leaf and I maneuvered around, very patiently and slowly, until I was able to get the pink flower into the background.
