A butterfly alighting on a blossom

On one of my last days before returning to college, my mom and I went to the zoo to see the new butterflies exhibit. I had received a new camera for my birthday, so my mom and I thought it would be fun to spend the day enjoying the butterflies and taking photographs together. As kids laughed about butterflies landing on their heads and arms, I captured this image of a butterfly resting on a flower.
