How I Got This Shot: While looking for wildflowers to photograph, I discovered the group of Turks Cap Lilies. The Black Swallowtail butterflies were enjoying the nectar from the Turks Caps. I just setup with a 70-200mm lens dialed in to 200mm, so as to not disturb the butterflies. It worked! They were more interested in getting fed than by my presence with a camera!
