Two butterflies in one photo

Taking photos of butterflies normally involves the challenge of defining them, and then snapping the shutter at just the right time to catch their wings while the wings are open, as the tops of their wings are much more colorful than the underside that shows when the wings are closed.

In today's photo, I happened to be able to catch two butterflies at the right moment int he same photo.  Adding this element of sport to photography makes it a more interesting hobby, IMHO.

Tomorrow I will conclude this butterfly series with what many would consider to be the most attractive butterfly species.

This week we are showing photos of Dublin, Ireland, on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

Nice photograph of the zebra butterflies. There were numerous examples at the butterfly house in the Naples Botanical Garden.
