Thursday Thirteen 304: Olbrich Botanical Gardens

Last week I shared a few of my butterfly photos taken on a visit to Olbrich Botanical Gardens last month. Today I thought I'd share a few photos taken in some of the outer gardens.

Thursday Thirteen 303: Blooming Butterflies

In mid-August, a friend and I were at Olbrich Botanical Gardens during one of the final days of this year's "Blooming Butterflies" event, held in the Bolz Conservatory. Here are thirteen photos of some of the butterflies seen.

Random Photo: The Latest Shoe Accessory

A friend and I were at the last day for Olbrich Garden's "Blooming Butterflies" over the weekend. Just as we were ready to leave the conservatory, a swallowtail suddenly took a fancy to my shoe, delaying our departure for some ten or fifteen minutes, until the would-be stowaway found another place to rest. Sadly, I don't think this butterfly will last very long. As you can see, one of his wings is damaged, making it difficult for him to fly.
