One Thing, Three Ways: More Butterflies
The Berniece Grewcock Butterfly and Insect Pavilion at the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha is home to butterflies, moths, and hummingbirds. It includes several waterfalls and an Amazon water lily pool. Here are three more shots of butterflies from the exhibit.
What do you think? Do you have a favorite below?
Butterfly Photo #1. A butterfly’s-eye view.
Butterfly Photo #2. I love how this butterfly is grabbing on to a piece of this tree with his thread-like legs.
Butterfly Photo #3. I love the jagged edges of this butterfly’s paper-thin wings.

These are all stunning again. You have surpassed yourself.
Thanks so much for your encouragement! There is a butterfly exhibit at the Phoenix Zoo. When we are there next month, I may spend HOURS taking photos of butterflies! 🙂
Oh wow. All those different types of butterflies. Lovely. I will have to see if I can get to the butterfly place near me. I will have to check to see if I my camera will be able to cope with the heat in there first though
Lovely images, I am partial to the third one.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comment. I think there’s something about the road warrior tatters in the butterfly’s wings that I find interesting. Know what I mean?
Yes, it speaks of the butterfly’s personal history and no two are alike. I also think that sometimes things that are less than “perfect” tell a much more interesting story.
Just like all of us imperfect creatures and the interesting stories we have to share from those experiences. 🙂
Yup, exactly 🙂
Again such great and beautiful shots, but I guess my favourite is the second one because of the interesting details. 🙂
Did you see the shot I took last summer where the butterfly was drinking nectar? I was pretty proud of that one! 🙂
The first shot is really unique! I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone capture a butterfly from that angle! Very clever 🙂
Wow! Thanks, Wanna Be!
