"The Chase Is On"...


It's a challenge to get good quality in-flight butterfly photos of a single butterfly, but to photograph two butterflies chasing each other is more rare. Patience, observation and experience with photographing butterflies helped me. A low angle produced an environmental portrait of these two deep in their environment.
Details: A Common Buckeye butterfly (Junonia coenia), on the right, chases a Pipevine Swallowtail (Battus philenor) at Holla Bend National Wildlife Refuge, Arkansas.
Comments welcome.
