San Antonio, Texas — San Antonio Botanical Garden

I really didn't get to know this butterfly very well. I was standing in front of the Auld House in the botanical garden. There was a bed of flowers there that was attracting a swarm of butterflies. I was watching the show when this tiny skipper landed right in front of me, and it only took a second for me to switch my camera to super-micro and take a couple shots. It took off and I lost it in the crowd.
