A Photograph captures a moment in time, to view for eternity
I can’t find my Butterfly identification sheet, so you’ll have to guess what kind of Butterfly this is.
It is a nice one!
I love butterflies, Vicki!
I love them too, Steve.
The advantage of the Butterfly House at the Zoo is that there are hundreds of them flying around you and landing on your arm or head – all you’ve got to do is be patient waiting for one to land on a leaf or the handrail of the walkway winding through the enormous temperature controlled glass house.
Falls under that “beautiful” category…. Very nice photo.
A very obliging one that stayed still long enough for you to take its photo!
Such beautiful detail ~ almost looks golden in color on my screen. I still have not visited our butterfly exhibit locally. It’s at an aquarium here – but not sure if year-round or seasonal… would be fun for photos I bet!! xxoo
Sounds like it might be a good place to visit for you, Robyn. It’s so much easier to photograph a butterfly indoors. What I like is the waist-high hand rail which keeps visitors on the wooden suspended walkway (sort of like in the Aviary). The butterflies land on the rail and you don’t have to bend over too much.
I really love butterflies!
I’ll have to wait several months though to see them again in real life.
Glad you like them Timo – I guess the Butterfly House at Melbourne Zoo is not quite the same as in the wild, but at least they’re easy to catch in a photo.
