Butterfly and insect photo gallery

The photos in the butterfly and insect photo gallery below for the most part have come from our garden. Butterflies have always fascinated me. They certainly are beautiful and amzingly delicate. If I'm being honest, I'll have to admit to not quite feeling the same about insects. Beautiful just isn't a word I normally assocaite with them. Some of them can be very delicate, though. When you look at them up close is when you see just how unique looking they are. You can click any of these photos if you'd like to see a larger version.
