Firefly puts an Emerald Swallowtail back onto a plant, after it landed on his hand. What a thrill!
We have been enjoying learning about caterpillars and butterflies so much these past couple of weeks. As our own butterflies began to emerge, we took a few hours to go and see an amazing indoor exhibit of butterflies. Here are some photos of our day there. (Click on a photo to see a larger version.)
These photos were taken at the beautiful Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, Maryland.
It was so hard to get a shot of these ever-moving Blue Morpho butterflies. I had to put my camera on a very fast shutter speed and finally got this shot.
