Butterflies 1

Butterflies are a beautiful insect. Brookfield Zoo in Illinois has a nice exhibit featuring butterflies and there are butterfly gardens and exhibits throughout where one can view butterflies as well.

The next 9 days I will be sharing photographs from the butterfly exhibit at Brookfield Zoo along with tidbits of information on where to view butterflies, how to help butterflies and how to attract butteflies to your own garden.

I hope you enjoy this series as much as I enjoyed the butterflies at the zoo and walk away with some ideas for enjoying and helping butterflies yourself.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed visit tomorrow to see a different butterfly. I have more butterfly photographs on Flickr and Facebook. To see those you can click on the links along the left side of the blog for either Flickr or Facebook. To see more of my photography, you can also visit my Artfire studio, The Shutterbug Eye.



  1. I love to look at pictures of butterflies... I have yet to catch a good picture of one!

  2. Are there any butterfly gardens or exhibits around you. Those are great opportunities because there are so many butterflies. I had a great time at the one at the zoo. I also went to one in Aruba that was really neat. I plan to do some research on exhibits to list in one of my butterfly blogs. I have 8 more days of butterflies (see the exhibits are just amazing!)
