Beautiful butterflies

Who loves flowers nearly as much as me? These incredible insects!

My nephew, sister-in-law and I recently enjoyed a visit to the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. For a short time during the summer the Gardens open a butterfly house.

While my nephew was too busy asking his mum for some cheese to fully enjoy what he was seeing, I had a wonderful time trying out my macro lens to take some close up shots. A fellow photographer had one land on his tripod while I had one land on my dress. It had to be (very gently) asked to get off!
