Joe Pye Weed... and Some Bug
by Bud Hensley (Bud) 
Pentax K10D
Middletown, Ohio
United States of America

Photographer Notes:
When the Joe Pye is in bloom, the butterflies show up in big numbers here. This one, barely visible here, is an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail. I tried to shoo it away so I could get a clearer shot of the Joe Pye Weed... but no luck. I think it complements the bloom nicely.

That is such a terrible thing that BUG got in the way, Bud. I am feeling bad for you but you somehow managed to salvage a photo. Congratulations on your lovely POTD.

Beautiful composition, Bud! I also think that the butterfly so well compliments your lovely floral shot. Congratulations on a very nice POTD win today!

Lovely image Bud. The background green really makes the butterfly stand out. Nice work!

Great composition. The background really brings out the rich color of the butterfly. Congratulations on your win!
