Although I had every intention of spending some time today posting pictures from the Brooklyn Museum and Brooklyn Botanical Garden I got sidetracked by butterflies instead. Yesterday as I was walking along the Roanoke River in Salem I saw a bundle of butterflies just resting on a rock. As I went closer to explore and take some photos I must have disturbed them because they all took off and flew around me. I felt like I was in a Disney movie or something. They checked me out and after seeing I would cause them no harm they landed again along the banks of the river. It was a really unusual experience and I'm glad I got to capture some of it.
Even the ducks were amused.
