Taken at Shenandoah National Park on August 4th at 5:35 PM. Had wanted to take the Skyline Drive for several years now. I started early in the morning and saw butterflies all day. When I returned to the parking lot after taking one of the falls trails, there were dozens of butterflies on the flowers nearby. I used my Nikon D3000 at ISO-100, f/8, 165mm, 1/125 sec.

Location: Shenandoah National Park
