Butterflies Are Free

What is it about a butterfly that captures your vision.....makes you stop in your tracks and just look at them....It is their grace and beauty....I've learned quite a bit about butterflies today. I visited the Museum of Science in Boston and went into the butterfly gardens. When you walk in the butterflies are just everywhere, landing on your head and your hands. What beauty they possess in their wings and on their bodies. The funny part about the butterfly is their life span is so short. Once out of the larva state, its only one week or so. How sad that their beauty isn't around longer than that. Here are my photographs of some of these beautiful butterflies.














So next time you see a butterfly, take in all its spectacular beauty because it will be gone before you know it.
