Notes: Here is another butterfly I don't have the name for. This was also taken at the butterfly garden near Victoria on Vancouver Island. You might think captive butterflies, but the butterflies are thinking differently. Once the sun is up and its nice and warm in there, they are pretty much in motion. I don't have the knack for following them in flight, so when they land is when I get into action (term action used loosely). Tripod, cable release and a struggle to neither get in other peoples way and hoping kids done kick a tripod leg at an inopportune moment.
Best Season: Spring
