I suppose I wasn't in the mood to go out this particular day. I mean: "What is there out there on a hot summer day to photograph?"
Forcing myself out, I parked the car and walked to the spot I'd been many times before. But, wait, "today is different!!"
In front of me was this mass of butterflies. Butterflies everywhere! I had never witnessed this. And, to my credit, I had brought a lens I'd never used before--an old film camera single-lens reflex 50mm f/1.4.
I had a ball! Probably one of my most exciting days as a photographer.
