I went out in the park early one morning to photograph butterflies before the breeze came up. There were a lot of yellow swallow tails, fritillarys, and blue morphos visiting flowers. I came upon a rabbit brush in bloom with butterflies all over it. Upon closer look, the brush was full of moths and other insects. I spotted this hairstreak and a few other butterflies that I hadn't seen before.

Adjusted in PSE7.
