Capering about

The state I live in has few butterflies, especially compared to Queensland which has many rainforest species.  The conditions here are too harsh for all but the hardiest.  So when I see a new butterfly in my garden, it is cause for great excitement.  Today I saw not one, not two, but several of these fluttering about – I think they are Caper Whites.  The time they spent on each bloom was very brief; they danced about flippantly, daring me to chase them.  But I’ve learned my lesson on photographing butterflies, and know the most successful behaviour I can adopt is to sit quietly and wait.  It’s a useful discipline for me to learn and one I can apply to other aspects of my life.
