Just Visiting

I happened across this butterfly visiting a thistle on the trail to the Black Mesa summit.  It took a number of shots before the butterfly would cooperate and show his full colors but he finally did.


The raw image of this shot had quite a bit more color in the rock background.  I found that detracting from the butterfly and thistle so I toned down the saturation of the rock during the post processing of this shot.
