Flutterby by 30pics4jackiesdiamond


A visit to The New Forest Wildlife Park, wolves (I want one!) wild cats, wild boar, otters of every type, bison, deer, polecats.

Had to wait for the lens to de-mist for this one of a species of South American owl butterfly, which when it flies has gorgeous irridescent blue wings.
They are so beautiful. Hard to believe that the wings have that gorgeous blue colour on the other side.

Hi Jackie! Love your butterfly! Very personable little guy!

How about for this week’s challenge a photo that incorporates your top two favorite colors?

If that little hint of blue is anything to go by they must look beautiful in flight :)
