Hail the Red Admiral; National Photo Month, Day 31

The admirable red admiral (say that three times, fast), closes out National Photo Month and my 31 days of posting photographs.

This shot was enhanced with PicMonkey's daguerreotype feature and the addition of Kim Klassen's "Be Still" texture. I like the simplicity of the sepia. It puts more of a focus on the shadow.

It's fitting to end a photo month with the admiral, as I can honestly say I've never before had so many of this handsome butterfly visit my garden spaces in a single season. Every day has brought several of the admiral into the yard--often in playful pairs that dart around chasing each other in a game of cat and mouse.

It's been great fun sharing photographs with you during National Photo Month. Thanks for following along.

Make it a great day!
