Back at the fritillary party

by Deianeira (Deia) Zukowski July. 08, 2015 1375 views

About a month ago, I came across a huge swarm of fritillaries on some butterfly weed at the lake. I had trouble getting more than two of them in a single shot, but went back the next day. These are the results from my second attempt. It took me a long time to get to them, but I preferred these to the first round because the light was more interesting. It was around 6pm, and the air was hazy, apparently from forest fires all the way in Canada

Oh you are so lucky to see a huge swarm. Each of the shots is charming, but #4 is irresistable and now resides in my Favourites.
