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).
