Ballet in the air

Not having the Best Day Ever (headache, y u visit me today?), but the blog must go on.  How about pictures?  These ones make me happy - they're from the Butterfly Conservatory in Niagara Falls, Ontario.  I made some notes about what each of them are but I can't find them. :(

 For every shot that I got one with wings spread

or neatly folded so you can see their wings

 or how they're pirouetting

 or pausing on a flower

 or a leaf

 or a stem

or a railing (where it was nearly crushed by a careless passerby after my shutter clicked)....

....I've got about a thousand blurred shots of butterflies in flight.  I had just gotten my Rebel and was spazzing about all the pretties.  I can't wait to go again to enjoy them.


  1. Omigosh I actually gasped. I don't know butterfly names, but these photos are just gorgeous. I hope you don't mind if I use one of them as my desktop pic.

  2. Lovely! We have a butterfly conservatory here as well -- perhaps one of these cold days I should take That Girl and my camera and enjoy a few hours of beauty. (But I confess, I'd be terribly nervous about being one of those morons who wasn't paying attention and accidentally killed one of the poor creatures.)
