Crazy 88 Butterfly

The Spring Butterfly Exhibit at the Desert Botanical Gardens runs through May 31.  

I really like this photo so I decided to share it to commemorate the mariposas at the Butterfly Pavilion.  We can never get enough of these beautiful creatures.

I had no idea this particular type of butterfly existed. I thought in the portal that it was a work of art. And it is a work of art, but not in the way I expected. Wonderful shot!

Antjas said...

It's hard to imagine that this is real! Wow.

He's gorgeous! He almost doesn't look real.

Sharon said...

I have never seen anything like this one. He looks like a work of art.

Hilda said...

That cannot be real! Can it?

Fantastic shot, real butterfly or not.

Fantastic!

Neva said...

A very lovely butterfly!!!!

Julie said...

I clicked on the comments to try to see if the butterfly is real or a work of art. Either way, it is very beautiful.

I can assure you all the crazy 88 butterfly is very real! He was hard to photograph and then he landed on this perfect colored table and I got lucky to get the photo. As you could guess, I took many photos of the always moving butterfly that did not turn out as well.

Looks like a trick!
Wonderful.

I agree, never enough. Great shot of an almost impossible to exist creature...

Daily Chicago Photo said...

This is a great photo - perfect on the teal color table. Patience, again, pays off. (Have to remind myself that often.) Its "design" must camoflage it somehow.

OMG! That is an incredible butterfly, especially against the green. Knockout image.

We lived in Phoenix for one year about 20 years ago, and I never was honored to see such a gorgeous butterfly.

Blognote said...

A piece of art, both the butterfly as well as the photo with these contrasting designs and colours!

PAK said...

Beautiful!

Yesterday, I saw first butterfly in this year (of cours, live butterfly!).

Jilly said...

What a stunning butterfly. Never seen this before, even in a magazine.

april said...

Oh, a great one. At the first moment I didn't believe that it is real.

JM said...

This is the most amazing pattern I've ever seen on a butterfly! It's unbelievable! Absolutely gorgeous!
