Blooming Butterflies #4

Another beauty from the exhibit. Perhaps I should go back and get more photos. It's such a pleasure watching them flit about the area, and it's such a thrill if one of them lands on one's arm and occasionally one's head!

  1. I'm amazed at the varieties of butterflies you do have. I thunk we have just a small percentage of all these - and I'm also impressed by the quality of the photos!

    PS Congratulation both to you and your dog! ;-)

  2. You should definitely go back: these photos are wonderful. I know nothing about exotic butterflies, but I really like these images.

  3. This is the first time I've seen this particular butterfly. His design isn't as elaborate as others, but I love it — very dramatic.

    I'm a day late, but congratulations on your 1000th post! That's a fantastic achievement! And happy birthday to Maggi too!

  9. You really got some nice photos. Did any happen to land on you? I guess bright clothes probably attract them.
