Flitting and Fluttering

LC0340



My husband is just the greatest! To help dissipate my photography blahs he took me to the Milwaukee Museum Butterfly house. Hope you don't mind some splashes of color because these aren't all the photos.

  1. oh wow! this is such a great treat! i believe butterflies are one of the loveliest winged creatures... i don't mind that they eat a lot of leaves during their "caterpillar stage"... their beauty is worth it... and my fave is the last 5 macro shots... the butterfly on 2nd and the 3rd to the last photos looks cheeky:)

  12. So pretty, Lisa. Our local Living Museum usually plays host to Monarchs. Their chrysalis is so beautiful with the rings of gold on them.
