Butterflies and Orchids - Two of My Favorite Things
I have many favorite things in life, truth be told, but truly near the top of the list are both butterflies and orchids. I love to take photos as well. It stands to reason then, that the minute I see a butterfly on an orchid, you will see me trying to capture it with my camera!
These are not taken out in the wild, though I wish I could have done that! I don't live in an area conducive to wild orchids growing, along with butterflies to visit them. However, I have had the chance to visit butterfly conservatories where once in a while they have orchids as well.
So these are some favorites of mine for sure, for I so love butterflies and orchids together!
The first time I saw a butterfly on an orchid, as opposed to just another flower, leaf or a rock, I was so excited! I think I was so surprised, I couldn't get my camera ready quickly enough to take the shot before he fluttered away. Next time! So, the next time I was prepared, and got lucky. It makes sense that if there is a butterfly in search of nectar from a flower, or even just a place to rest, that an orchid makes as much sense as any other flower.
You will see an owl butterfly among others in the photos I share here. The owl butterflies have protective eye spots that look like the eyes of a much larger creature than the butterfly is.
I hope you have enjoyed my small photo gallery of various orchids and butterfly photos here. If you have any thoughts on what the particular orchids are that are shown here, please let me know. Thank you for your visit!
