I visited the Butterfly Gardens in Victoria, British Columbia, recently and thought I'd post a few pictures.

I love your butterflies, dpc! There's so many variants and they're (almost) always vibrantly coloured. Needed in fall when all other colour is long gone.

Tossing in a dragonfly from this summer in the mix.
This is a male Broad-bodied chaser - Libellula depressa.

Today we had a visitor thumb a free ride on one of the logs from the shed.

seemed very dopey so rather than leave it on the back of the sofa where the kids could hurt it, encouraged it onto a pice of paper and transferred it to one of our reading lamps, it seemed to like the heat from the bulb as it crawled down towards the heat and opened it's wings to reveal it's a Peacock Butterfly. A touch awkward to photograph as the lamp kept getting in the way.

Anyway, 6D + 100f2.0 @ f16, heavily cropped.
