Samaritan Butterflies - Taroko

The sight of these butterflies tending an injured friend struck me. I don't do much animal photography, but this occasion gave the opportunity to draw a connection between animal and human behaviour, something I learned from Tim Flach, one of the worlds best animal photographers.

When I moved slowly enough, they let me get within a few inches of them - I held out the camera at arms length and shot blind for the second one - made me a little nostalgic for the LCD on the Fuji.

I've never seen butterflies do this. Very touching images.
