Orchids and Butterflies


IMG_4078Our weather seems to be playing a belated April Fool’s joke on us.  I awoke this morning to about an inch of snow on the ground.  Poor light and rain have discouraged me from taking the camera out lately, so I am glad to be able to post a few more photos from my visit to Dow Gardens.

They have a nice collection of orchids, and the camera really doesn’t do them justice.  They are so beautiful and exotic.

This Giant Swallowtail was attracted to a lady’s flowered blouse and rested there for quite some time, giving many people a great photo-op!

  1. The weather here has not been like spring either. Beautiful pictures. I love butterflies and have been seeing quite a few this year. They have been scarce around my place for a few years and it is good to see them back. Thank you for sharing these great pictures. Hugs
