This butterfly with the cutest curlicue posed long enough for me to capture this image. Taken at La Paz Waterfall in Costa Rica.
We have a mommy and daddy Cardinal with a family of two babies in a nest resting just about eye level in our Bradford Pear tree. I just happened to be around, armed with camera, when daddy Cardinal arrived with food and cautiously made his way, branch to branch, to the nest to feed his babies. This series of pictures, by the way, justifies my entire purchase on that new Canon 70-300mm L lens – you can see the food in the Cardinal’s mouth!
