I see a lot of butterflies in my yard that look like the top one pictured.  They love Lantana.

So lovely - I visited the Butterfly Conservatory in Hershey a few months ago and was positively spellbound!

Simply stunning photos, Roy. Butterflies are magical... I went to a live butterfly exhibit in St Petersburg, Russia a few years back and it was an unforgettable experience.

Roy,

What gorgeous photos of all the fancy wings you shared with us.  I remember taking Ron's mom for a similar exhibit outside of Denver.  It was a mesmerizing moment.  Thank you for the photos.  A

Ooh, I love these butterfly exhibits. We went to one a few years ago, and they also had hummingbirds flying around with the butterflies. It was quite magical. D

Those are some awesome photos of butterflies. You are a master of the camera, Roy.

Oh my gosh, Roy, these are fabulous shots - you are simply an amazing photographer! We visited a butterfly sanctuary in Costa Rica last year and I could not get enough of them - they are simply the flowers of the air, aren't they?!

Have a great week, Roy!
