25 Beautiful Butterfly Pictures

Butterflies are excellent subjects for photography. During the right season on a windless day with some good early evening light, head down to your local park or favorite outdoor spot that has a lot of flowers and leaves which make great landing spots for butterflies. This is the perfect setting to take beautiful butterfly pictures like one of these twenty-five.

      Agreed, I want to fly like them :D but I don’t want to be an insect I’d rather be like Thumbelina because she’s sooo beautiful but with wings. Well, she gets some when she marries a butterflyman, if that’s what they call it…but still ya ya.
