The butterflies are blooming

I spent some time inside Olbrich Gardens today for their annual Blooming Butterflies exhibit.

The wonderful spots on this common buckeye butterfly made it my favorite of the day.

There were more zebra butterflies (like the one above) than any other species, but they rarely stopped fluttering about. I was lucky to get this shot. Other butterflies seemed to be a little more willing to pose for portraits.

  1. Happy Birthday Jon! I love your butterfly pictures. Are these all butterflies from the mid west or are they from other parts of the world as well? Hope your day is a good one and you have time to celebrate yourself!
