Of Butterflies and Botanicals

Isn’t it surprising how something as freaky looking as a caterpillar can end up looking as beautiful as a butterfly? It’s quite the beast-into-beauty transformation. Here are some more photos of butterflies and botanicals from my visit to the Ontario Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory in the summer of 2008. As someone for whom the Monarch butterfly is the only recognizable (and nameable) species, to discover even a fraction of the thousands of differently-coloured varieties that frequent this Conservatory is simply mind-boggling.
