Photographer's Note

I took this picture of a butterfly sitting in the mulch in Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Vienna, Virginia. I was about two feet away when I took this and I was at the full 200mm. I had set the ISO to 400 to help keep the shutter speed up higher as well. That's a sprinkler thing on the left I do believe. The butterfly was rather patient and let me take a whole slew of shots while it just sat there. It slowly flapped its wings up and down. I liked this pose the most. Taken last Sunday at around 2pm.
