[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The accompanying notes my pictures, and I guess this happens to many colleagues, not stereotyped, have directly to do with my mood, with what happened when I got the image, as I felt, with as I was touched by a story that accurate, or did not, etc. Sometimes things are happening within you, in your spirit, and what is seen through the lens of your camera, however humble, is a catalyst that allows our emotions manifest, displayed, are released.
Sometimes, however, even though our eyes focus finally the elusive monster "Loch ness", our apathy or discouragement only allow us to think, boring, if you will like scientific name "Worm Lake" or simply " Scotty ". These last few times surely will match we accompany our photos simply with cold taxonomic classification of the species.

Wow !!! All this pompous introduction was just to tell you that, although this is not the most shocking picture of this butterfly is an image that whenever I remember it like the day "Cinderella" (as the tale, as well call it vulgarly in Argentina) obsessively pursued me for the photograph (as an aspiring supermodel). The first time I took a photo of inn on the green grass on the other side of a stormwater diversion channel ("gutter" we tell ourselves), a distance that prevented me an acceptable outlet. Ok, I thought, maybe next time. And I went on my way. However this "white peacock" as they call it in InglÚs, chased me literally hovering around me, and always alighting at my feet (my feet !!!), and again, and again. When I finally thought. the catch was acceptable, I walked away and she definitely, satisfied and flirty, too.
