Tiny Dancer


I saw this tiny little butterfly flying around a prickly pear cactus when I was at the Desert Botanical Garden on Sunday.  When it landed I wondered if it would be there long enough for me to capture it.  It was and here is the result.  It was no bigger than the end of my thumb and it made me think of that Elton John song "Tiny Dancer".
