Canadian Tiger Swallowtail

I had to leave work early due to illness, and on my way out the door I spotted this butterfly. It never moved. I grabbed two shots with my Sansung S7 Edge and headed home. When I got home, I was amazed by how nice the shots were. Perfect light, great details.

Two days after that encounter, I came across another one of these beautiful creatures. This time it landed right next to me on a tree and again, posed for me. I once again pulled out my S7 and snapped a series of shots and a quick video clip.

Once again, the pictures came out fantastic. Proof that you can get superior photos with a mobile phone, perfect natural light and a still subject.
