Weekly Photo Challenge: Waiting

by Andrea O'Connell

The weekly photo challenge topic is waiting…. and it is a challenge because there are many ways to interpret what waiting is.

I chose to use one of my photos of butterflies as they slurp up the sweet nectar of a waiting flower.

Here it is – Update:  Photo #2 is the original I posted last night.

I realized this morning I’d chosen the wrong photo to publish!  I intended to post #1 last night.  I like #1 because the wings are quiet and appear darker – in focus. However, in #1 the Butterfly’s face is less focused…. Trade off, I guess!  🙂

      Thank you Patti – and yours are amazing. Thank you for being in NYC amidst all the Occupy goings-on and doing such a great job covering it!
