More Butterflies! So Many Butterflies!


IMG_3099I shared a single butterfly yesterday, and I know it’s been a photo-heavy week, but I can’t resist sharing more. The Chicago Botanic Garden’s Butterflies & Blooms exhibit — a permanent structure with net walls and a net ceiling — absolutely teems with a wide variety of butterflies. Some of them are the size of small birds, and just as fast or faster.

Not easy to capture.

Plus, my camera battery died, which is a frustrating moment. I need to get back up batteries. Or at least a back up battery. But I had my little camera, and got a few shots with it as well.

I have no idea of any of the species, so feel free to identify if you do!

I wish I’d gotten some pictures that really gave the sense of the ethereal loveliness of the masses of them flying around, but it was tough to capture.

And now from the little camera:

  1. There can never be too many butterflies for me. I’ve made two trips to the Butterfly garden in Victoria, Canada. I have hundreds of photos. I have butterflies on so many things in my house. Beautiful photos. I hate it when the battery dies too. 😦

    • Thanks so much! Yes, I really should have charged it, it’s that moment when the camera refuses to respond to the shutter, and then scolds you mildly…my fault for not feeding it properly!

      There’s something really magical about them…they’re just beautiful for the sake of it.
