Epcot Flower and Garden Butterfly

This photo was taken at the Epcot Flower and Garden festival in 2017. At the time I was shooting with a Sony NEX-7 and a Tamrom 18-200 telephoto lens. I really like how you can see the light coming through the wings and the color of the flowers the butterfly is currently resting on.

Fun Fact: The average life span for a butterfly is one month. But the life span of your typical ‘garden’ variety butterfly is one week.

MilesGeek was founded by Jed Stafford, a seasoned traveler with over a decade of experience. The concept of MilesGeek emerged after Jed booked numerous around-the-world itineraries using points and miles. Along the journey, a curious realization dawned upon him: his passion lay not in the intricacies of daily mileage hacks, but rather in the captivating narratives of the people and places encountered during travel.

As MilesGeek evolved, it attracted other writers who contributed compelling content. The name now reflects the number of miles we travel each year more so than reward miles. While we continue to spotlight mileage and points that offer substantial benefits, our aim is to emphasize long-term mileage advantages, steering clear of the transient allure of short-lived deals.

There are plenty of great sites out there such as The Points Guy which already successfully cover the daily nuances of credit card offers and breaking short-term deal alerts. Our focus lies in providing insights into maximizing travel benefits throughout the year, rather than bombarding readers with transient offers. We advocate for utilizing sign-up bonuses and credit card points to attain free travel, especially for those seeking to explore the world on a limited budget.
