Grizzly bear butterfly
Photo and caption by R Bostick
Took this photo at the Memphis Zoo on Senior Day. Was actually trying to get a good shot of a grizzly bear in the enclosure from a walkway above. There are flowers on the ledge just below the walkway where I stood and this beautiful insect landed there. My wife Jennifer saw it and said "Get a picture of the butterfly." I did a quick focus and snapped the shutter. Best shot of the day at the zoo.
Location: Memphis Tennessee Zoo, just above the Grizzly Bear enclosure
