  1. Nice close shots of things we usually see from much farther away. I especially like the vulture. Look at the sheen on those wings!

  2. Lovely photos. The butterfly is not an Eastern Tailed Blue, however, but an Azure (genus Celastrina). There are a lot of very similar species in this complex and unfortunately I don’t know which one it is.
