Thursday Thirteen Butterfly Photo Shoot

At the lovely Ft Worth botanical Gardens I got to have a photo shoot w/ these Beauties last Weekend after/as part of my Photography class. They posed so nicely
this one slept through the whole thing
This one pointed the way

What lovely blue black wings
The eyes catch you on this one
A classic beauty
can you see Mickey mouse
A small juicy piece of an orange

doesn't this one look so like dappled light through the plants

Beautiful Pictures!

Franklin Conservatory in Columbus, Ohio where my husband is from has a great butterfly room if you ever get there.

We also went to the one at our local botanical garden here this past summer and are looking forward to hopefully catching it again this time! I'll probably do a similar 13 at that point! ;)

Thanks for sharing, they are lovely!

I thought of you this weekend. I finally made it to First Mondays in Canton! It was awesome. Totally out of this world. We walked for 8 hours and still didn't see half of it. I think when we go back, we'll get a room for the night so we can break it up into two days. IT WAS SO WORTH THE DRIVE!!!
P.S. Love the pictures...I need to go there, next!

Is it OK to have a favorite? If it is, then I like #11 best. Thanks for sharing, and thanks for visiting my TT.

FRIGGA said...

Wow, those are all great! It must've been a lot of fun to be in there with all those butterflies! :-)

I am really in the mood for a major getaway. I would love to be one of those butterflies today and take off. But I am here and just enjoyed some major beauties in the world of butterflies. Thanks so much.
