    The things we do for a shot!

    Chasing Butterflies around my garden for weeks like a mad woman (I can never get a shot before they flutter off), lying flat out on the wet grass while she lays her eggs - finally get a shot. Then the next day Hubby mows the lawn and destroys my chance of future caterpillar shots Not exactly National Geographic but at last a Butterfly.

    That's the sort of dedication that being part of CiC demands!!

    Can you resign from CiC temporarily to avoid getting wet and then rejoin when the opportunity has passed?

    Joanne I think the capture has been well worth your sacrifice.

    A nice profile, nicely composed and nice and sharp. Not easy to do when you're up to your armpits in wet caterpillars.

    Joanne I like this shot. Well worth the chasing. Although I found a big butterfly bush and it presents lots of chances , most of them are in bright sunlight and don't produce shots of this quality.

    The discomfort will fade but this great shot will last
