It was midday. It was so boiling hot that even the butterflies and bugs stood quite quiet, even when I went close to them. She didn't bother me looking at her, which was a pleasure.
This shot is not exactly *real*, I must admit. The butterfly here was posing because she was not really alive. In fact she was very dead(if any one can be *very* dead). I found it stuck to the radiator in my car. It was so beautiful that I kept her and decided to compose the photo with one of my beloved cactus. I'm sorry for the poor butterfly.
