Gallery: Butterflies

Because my "Insects" gallery is almost bursting, I'll move the butterflies here. 2005 was especially good for butterflies, I found a place where you are literally wading through them in July and August. Wonderful. They are quite tame too, and can be approached with a 90mm lens. That's what I consider very close to paradise...
