Butterfly on a Leaf

Butterfly on a Leaf - Fuji XE-1, 60 macro, f/2.4, 1/280s, ISO 200
Yesterday was our day to hang out in Victoria.  We started the day off at the Victoria Butterfly Gardens, which we enjoyed as much as the kids.  I find butterflies challenging to photograph.  You need to get close to them because they are small and the close focus distance makes the depth of field really narrow.  For this image, I pulled backa bit because I found the shape of the end of the leaf to be interesting.  That increased working distance gave me enough depth of field to have more of the butterfly in focus.
