I love to sit on our patio and enjoy my morning coffee as the sun peeks over the jungle-covered hills behind our home in Los Ayala. I enjoy watching the hummingbirds and butterflies flitting around our garden, alighting on the flowers and then zooming away. This beautiful orange butterfly lingered in our garden the other day, giving me a great opportunity to capture its magnificence against the backdrop of our orange flowering shrub, almost as if it was cooperating with my camera.
