So far this year, I visited the Butterflies Go Free exhibit twice; First on the day it opened then a month later. I wouldn't go on the first day again as there were very few butterflies flying about. But that totally changed my second visit. There were butterflies, caterpillars and butterfly eggs everywhere you looked.
One of the first butterflies I captured was this Sulphur (Phoebis sp.). I love the yellow against the purplish background
Another I've not seen in awhile is the Great Eggfly Bolina. (Seen here is a female.)
I managed to grab a couple of 'First Timers' for me -- a Rusty-tipped Page (Siproeta epaphus) and a Gulf Fritillary (Agraulis vanillae)
I'm hoping to get back to visit the buttereflies again in the near future. So you can expect more photos to come.
Hope you enjoyed these images.

Thanks for looking. And please stop by again.
