Thematic Photographic 344 - Spontaneous

Beauty by the front door
London, ON
August 2015
‎Sometimes, photographic moments seem to materialize out of nowhere. So you grab whatever camera is closest, shoot as quickly as you can, and hope for the best.

When my wife noticed the butterfly climbing up the front wall of our house as we stepped outside to walk the dog, my only thought was to reach for my smartphone and capture this lovely creature before she disappeared back into the night.

Your turn: This week's Thematic theme, spontaneous, celebrates those surprise moments when we weren't otherwise ready to take that picture. When you don't have the luxury of time to consider, compose, expose and shoot a given scene, what do you do? Please share a spontaneous shot on your blog or website, then leave a comment here to let everyone know where to find it. ‎Visit other participants to spread the photographic goodness, and check back through the week in case you've got more to share. If you're new to Thematic, head here to learn more. Thanks, and enjoy!

Love that butterfly....

Mine are here. I'd not taken my camera out for a but was really pressed for time. These are all shot through a bus window.

Carmi, sitting on the front porch just after sunset, noticed a flitting motion. Using the flash, photographed this moth.

So I see you said spontaneous, yet also...Butterfly!

I took this pic on a hike looking for butterflies, so not very spontaneous...but nonetheless:

I didn't think I had anything for this theme, but then I spontaneously decided to post this - a bit late!
