I’m coming out….

The butterflies are back at the Franklin Park Conservatory in Columbus, Ohio and so was I!  The butterfly guy was doing his talk about butterflies while holding a Blue Morpho and asked had anyone been able to take a photo of one of them with their wings open.  Guess who was the only one to raise their hand? He was shocked!  I didn’t tell him that I got the photo at another butterfly house but why split hairs 😉

This image, shot through the glass of the hatchery, is of a Paper Kite butterfly that had recently emerged from its chrysalis and was waiting for its wings to dry.


The time has come for me  To break out of this shell  I have to shout  That I am coming out – Diana Ross “I’m Coming Out”

    Nicely shot. Did he ask for photographic proof? Regardless, well done to catch one in flight.
