Love is like a butterfly

Blue Morpho butterfly. These have vivid blue wings but I couldn't quite persuade any of them to pause long enough for me to capture them opened out!

Another Blue Morpho- you can just see the blue on the other side of the wings here.

Owl Butterfly. The spots on its wings are to scare of predators by looking like an owl's eyes.

Asian Swallowtail

Common Mormon butterfly.

Tree Nymph.

Tree Nymph. This shot hasn't been cropped - I really was able to get this close!

maudlaurens Extraordinaire prise !! vous excellez dans la macro Hélen !! Les morphos, mon mari en a vu en liberté en Guyane Française ; les enfants les attrapaient avec des paquets de cigarettes de couleur bleue, cela les attirait !!
