Butterfly Wings I–Zebra Longwing

This past weekend I went to the Butterfly Pavilion at the Albuquerque Biopark to photograph butterflies. I became fascinated with watching the butterflies, and before I knew it more than three hours had gone by. In the next week or so I will be posting photos from the Butterfly Pavilion. I loved the Zebra Longwings (Heliconius charitonius).

    Gorgeous pics Linda, lovely colours and I love the ‘in flight’ shot 🙂

  2. Stunning series, Linda! So very beautiful against the bright blooms. Terrific in flight shot, too. Looking forward to more butterfly posts!

  3. Thanks Lisa and Julie. I’ve always had quite a lot of difficulty photographing butterflies. The pavilion gives me a chance to try to improve. They’re lovely to see!
