FULL DISCLOSURE DEPT.: I did not take this picture of myself. It was taken by a roadside commercial photographer as I rode past him last fall (2013) on the Dragon at Deal’s Gap, a stretch of roadway popular with motorcyclists that has 318 curves in 11 miles. I’ve posted so many motorcycle-related stories here that I thought this picture would make a nice complement to them.
The first time I posted this picture I identified this creature as a moth. A friend got in touch and claimed it was a butterfly. So… butterfly it is, unless some smart person can prove otherwise. I was having enough trouble identifying my bird photos.
I took this picture at dawn at Maine’s Pemaquid Point Lighthouse for a brochure I did for the Maine Department of Education.
