Little Metalmark

Harvesters and Metalmarks. Little Metalmark Butterfly on Grassleaf Barbara's Buttons (Marshallia graminifolia). Alachua County, Florida. 2012. Asteraceae (Aster family).

I took this shot in a grassy, soggy ditch. The butterfly was fairly cooperative and stayed on the flower, but it kept moving around, so the background was ever changing. I was a little disappointed to see the big foxtail grass blur in the upper corner when I got home, but I don't seem to be able to crop it away. I'm trying to embrace it! It's butterfly season, so maybe I'll get another chance with this little guy.
