BLACK BUTTERFLY




 My catch of the week:



The butterfly had a small, white and purple design underneath, on one side of each wing.



Yesterday, I's leaning against the railing of the balcony, when all of a sudden, I caught sight of this black beauty hovering  around bushes about twenty feet down on the slopes. What amazed me was its extraordinary  nimble speed.  It kept flapping its wings and hardly settled on any flower for a second. So i didn't even think of capturing it. Soon it flew away out of sight.

Since the day was sunny yet cool, I felt like going up to the lawn  with the camera in hand. 'Lo and behold,' I saw it there with the same elusive mesmerizing acts. This time I's not to miss the chance. I chased her and took many clicks with  only the above three worth presenting.

Friends,welcome here as always!
