Butterfly Day

Last week, Mary had a day off of work and we took advantage of the time and Ericka having some PCAs to care for her to run a few errands and stop by the Como Zoo to see their butterfly exhibit.

These are taken on my iPhone so they aren't the best ever, but they are still pretty neat IMHO.

A butterfly poses under the name of the exhibit.

They had a card identifying species, but I don't have the one I saved handy.

Flowers too
In addition to the hundreds of butterflies fluttering about, the flowers grown for them to feed on were also lovely.

Some of them were particularly hard to photograph, either by being camouflaged or by hiding their best colors upon landing.

And as a bonus, here's a butterfly that visited my prairie earlier this year.
