In August, I joined a photo hunt which had "butterfly" in the list. It was really rare for me to see butterflies in the neighborhood because our place is urbanized, so when I saw this critter in our garden, I was ecstatic.
Unfortunately, it wasn't butterfly, but a moth.
Still, I took delight in taking pictures of it, and it was a very willing model; I took my camera real close, and I did use the flash to capture this, yet it stayed there the whole time. This was originally shot in color, I just converted it to black and white using GIMP.
