this or that thursday: gulf fritillary butterfly

This little butterfly was flying around my zinnias last week. The good thing about the gulf fritillary is that they are not too camera shy. They will usually stick around for a little while even while you're hovering over them with a camera.


So I was able to get a couple of shots before he decided to fly away...







What have you capture lately? If you'd like to share, we'd love for you to join in! There are just a few rules.

Okay, just link up below!
