This photo of a monarch butterfly is so full of energy that it has the look of a vibrant watercolor painting. It is one of those happy accidents that turns into a memorable photograph!
This photo was captured on a late spring day in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden (Brooklyn, NYC), as is the unintended result of trying to capture a steady and sharp photo of a fast moving monarch butterfly.
The butterfly was constantly moving, and I was constantly adjusting the camera and shooting in an attempt to capture a sharp photo. That effort failed completely, but the end result is a happy accident that gives a painterly effect to this composition. The vibrant color palette and simple composition fully conveys the joy I experienced in observing this monarch's dance!
