3 butterflies

Here are 3 butterflies I’ve encountered in the last 3 years.¹

Butterfly in the butterfly garden at the Boston Museum of Science, Boston, MA. June, 2010.

Butterfly on a window, in The Butterfly Pavilion outside Denver, CO. April, 2011.

In the wild on the grounds of the De Cordova Museum, Lincoln, MA. August, 2012.

¹ I don’t come across butterflies in the wild nearly as often as YTSL of Webs of Significance, whose photos of her hikes around Hong Kong regularly include butterflies (among her other critter sightings).²
² I looked back at my photos from the hike we had together when I visited Hong Kong in August of 2011, but it would seem that I found no butterflies that day!
