Image: The Butterfly - Gabrielle Levion
A few of these common butterflies were bouncing from one flower to the next, flittering like flakes of sunlight. This one butterfly was particularly lethargic. It seemed drunk on nectar. Its tipsiness allowed me the split second to capture the image of its long shiny tongue before it too fluttered to the next flower, pregnant with purple treasure.
