Butterflies



At the Woodland Park Zoo. It was a cold afternoon, never got above 65 degrees, so the butterflies in the exhibit were conserving their energy and heat by staying very still. The few that were close to the pathway gave us a great opportunity to take closeups of them without worry of them flying away, but most of them hunkered down far, far away from the path.

Great photos! I try to snap photos of butterflies I see in my yard and I never get very lucky. Too warm, I suppose!
