Walking along the High Line, one of my favorite locations for taking photographs all year round. Every day brings another photo op as it is always different. There is so much going on you never know what you will see. As I was strolling along I noticed this butterfly flying around, so I waited till it landed on the flower and took this picture of it resting using my camera and manual lens. I managed to catch it just before it flew away.
