Wild animals are a great challenge to photograph. Always unpredictable with rich payoffs.

Falcate Orangetip Butterfly (Male)

This is one of the first butterflies of the year to appear. In past years I have seen them as early as mid February. BTW, only the males have the orange tips.

Nice shot. It's just above 32 degrees here so it may be a bit before I see anything like it here.
