From Southeast Asia, this female Rumanzovia Swallowtail opens wide it’s wings, showing off it’s lovely black and red colouring. I love the stark contrast between the butterfly wings and the green leaf that she is sitting on, yet they seem to blend beautifully.

Photo of the Day – Rice Paper Butterfly

From Southeast Asia, this Rice Paper Butterfly sure looks pretty as it takes a sip of nectar from a tropical, purple flower. Accented with green foliage. These particular butterflies were greatly abundant the day I took this photo. They would even gather in 6 or more along the walls of the conservatory.

From Central and South America, these guys are bright blue when their wings are open, but the only time they seemed to open their wings was when they were flying. Very pretty with the flash of blue floating through the conservatory.

From South East Asia, this black coloured butterfly was well hidden on the ground and in the dark and behind a bench! Well guess what? I found ya! Notice the grayish colouring near the bottom of the wings. Very pretty. I love the shape of the wings as well.

Photo of the Day – Tailed Jay Butterfly

This pretty little butterfly comes from Southeast Asia and was my most favourite when I went to the Butterfly Conservatory yesterday. The contrast of the teal and brown of it’s wings with the gray of the boulder it was on, made for a lovely image. Believe it or not, when this beauty opens up it’s wings, they are an almost lime colour, not the teal that you see here when it’s wings are closed. Very cool! Stay tuned to see what they look like in a future photo of the day!

For the next number of days I will be posting photos that I took at the Butterfly Conservatory in Cambridge, Ontario. There were so many pretty butterflies, interesting creatures, and lovely scenery there that I must share some of the images with you. When they become available on products, I will post a sampling of them. Right now, just too many photos to know where to begin.
