My daughter and I saw this gorgeous butterfly this morning.
We were observing it quietly for a while and just when I remembered that the camera was in my bag, a neighbour passed by, said "Hello" and scared the butterfly away. We thought that it was completely gone, but it landed only a few meters further. This time I managed to take a few pictures.
Surprisingly, the butterfly let me stay very close to it, and at some point I was just about 70 cm away from it (the zoom of the camera is not that great).
Later when we left, it even flew with us for a while:-)
