Mariposas (This is my 200th entry here- do I get some kind of prize, or should I just get out more?) When I was caught outside without an umbrella in torrential rain on my break when I working at the museum over the summer, I took the time to snap some more butterfly photos. My previous efforts are here. I went back with my film SLR just before the exhibition closed too, but I haven’t got round to scanning those yet. I love the way that when you get close to butterflies you realise just what creepy insecty bodies they have. In my head this one makes a noise like VRRROOOOOOOMSH. I can dream, ok? Bling pupae. Check out this BEAST.
