Stopping by Leaves on a Sunny Afternoon


A fall-colored butterfly stops to rest on a pile of leaves blown down by the storm. For a caption, all I could think of was the poem by Robert Frost, Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening, slightly modified to suit.

    Hi, I love what you do. Particularly enjoyed the rainy day in the old town with the colourful umbrellas. Also wanted to let you know about my new website, Sydney daily snap. Cheers, Nathalie

    What lovely colour contrast! Frost: Nothing Gold Can Stay would also work.

    Patience was certainly rewarded with this shot! (I was there while MarieMcC waited as the butterfly opened and closed its wings.)

    Isn’t it great when the butterfly poses for that one split second and you are actually able to capture it? Great shot.
