Looking into the eyes of a butterfly

Today's series of photos was taken at one of my very favorite places in Washington D.C. - the Butterfly Pavilion at the National Museum of Natural History. We decided to make another visit last weekend and I spent a lot of time observing and photographing. Today's post focuses on the faces of the butterflies. One of my goals was to see how many I could capture (and clearly).

These are a few of the results:

This one amazed me as it actually landed on my finger while trying to take a photo of a totally different butterfly! However, I then turned my attention to this one who came to say hello



I like the way you can see the "fuzz" on this butterfly
I love these butterflies, not sure of its name, but its bright yellow and black. You can't see the yellow in this photo so much



I couldn't get this one any clearer with my zoom, but it was a butterfly that actively "posed" so I included it
