Today we went to Butterfly World.

Beautiful Butterflies were flittering all around us.

the long road
Lily petted an African Spurred Tortoise.  More than a few times. (You're NOT supposed to touch anything!!!)  Lucky she came out ok.

Little tropical birds were here and there.

And in the garden, there were some beautiful flowers in the rain.

(All shots SOOC today - except the b/w conversion, taken with my 100mm 2.8 Macro....no time to edit, as we pack up for the last leg of our adventure)


How was your day?

I love all of these images! What's the name of the flower on the first shot? It is unique. And great butterfly shot. Sounds like you're having a wonderful adventure. Can't wait to see more! =)

Curious about what lens you used for that butterfly and flower image. Just gorgeous!
