Dance in Flight 07/04/12, Guifeng Mountain, Jiangmen, Guangdong, China. I assume this was a mating dance, and the first time I've observed one--though I've been watching butterflies for several years. Bringing the many shots I took in excitement up on the screen was a disappointment, my heart sinking with each one..until these two--(a composite image) the two must have been taken a half second apart, where the heads of both butterflies were somewhat in focus.
