A yellow butterfly on a purple flower in North Dakota.

I had seen this pretty yellow butterfly floating around our property in rural North Dakota for a few weeks but it was so elusive I could never get a shot. Then one day it was sitting contentedly on this flower long enough for me to get some nice shots.
