Butterflies Go Free
A delightful afternoon spent at the Botanical Garden's exhibit of Butterflies Go Free.
It is simply magical to enter this space and be surrounded by butterflies flitting around.
These butterflies are hard to capture as most of the time they are resting, their wings are closed. Their blue colour is spectacular.
Some pose, staying in one spot for a long time. Others seem to be always on the move.
Some perch daintily as they feed. Others flap their wings madly to stay in place.
But each is a thing of beauty. I try to imagine why they have evolved the way they have with their intricate colours and patterns. It was not just to be admired.
I am sure I did not spot all the varieties that were in the greenhouse. Here is the pamphlet that describes them all.
