I am always convinced I have found a new species of butterfly as I page through my field guide. I look and look and it usually turns out that my “great discovery” is very common and widespread all across North America. That doesn’t prevent me from admiring the butterfly. Actually, as I read the description, I appreciate the butterfly more, noticing all the specific marks mentioned in the book. Corey gave me a good tip about photographing butterflies. They react to movement, which makes them fly away. The trick is to move very slowly so as not to alarm them. I can’t wait to try this trick again. Imagine all the butterfly pictures I’ll get now!
