Butterfly Wonderland


I made another trip to Butterfly Wonderland on Friday.  That is were I found Nemo (see yesterday's post).  It was a very busy place this time with bus loads of school children on field trips.  I managed to get a few new pictures to share.  The Paper Kite butterfly pictured above and a small glass-winged butterfly pictured below.


The GREEN here is my way of saying Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Wonderful second shot. I have never seen a butterfly with transparent wings!

/The translucent wings in your second photo are so remarkable that they overshadow the exquisite shadow.

What a cool post and you even included a paean to St. Paddy's day! Love that glass wing flutterby!

The photos are superb. Hope you didn't have to trample any little kids to get them. But I like soft colors and the depth of field - especially in the 2nd shot.
