Butterflies

Close-Up, Nature

These little creatures were constantly fluttering about.  Luckily, I had ample time to meander through the Butterfly Gardens and shoot a few of them as they occasionally touched down.

The Common Blue Morpho (first & third photos) was the most active of all.  In flight, it displayed its magnificent blue wings, and upon landing it closed them to reveal a brownish exterior.  Fortunately, as I rounded a corner I caught one with its wings spread out on a large leaf.

Best of all, the White Tree Nymph butterfly mistook my shoe for a flower, so I carefully twisted to my left and snapped a few shots before it flew away.

Entranced by rural and urban decay. I am drawn to these forlorn sites because they emote conflicting sentiments of beauty and disintegration.
