An Orange Skipper

A skipper butterfly, by it name, is the skipper of today session. No more rattle, and not showing a little bit of bad, I follow through.


Life should be easy, but I shall not count the total though its tiny hairs are obviously clear. I just follow through. 


"You can act like a clown. While most of us enjoying the funny show, you will end up with descent pictures." The skipper guides me through.

"Do not waste time setting up a shot, take a spontaneous one. Imperfection is beauty."


"And don't forget to bring ice-cream in your next trip. I prefer chocolate flavor."

"Aahaahh, now I see what you mean!" I murmur.
