I stopped to see the spring butterfly exhibit at the Desert Botanical Garden late yesterday afternoon. (It's best to go after 2:30 when all the bus loads school kids have departed.) I liked this shot looking right into the eyes of this Julia butterfly.
In fact, I cropped the photo way down just to see how good those eyes look. Not bad for hand held.
I thought this one was especially pretty. It's called a White Peacock. I like pale turquoise/green tones in the wing.
