B - Butterfly



Butterfly

This round on ABC Wednesday, I will be featuring animals, and for letter "B," I chose butterfly. This image was shot in Baluarte, a one of a kind zoo in Vigan City (Ilocos Sur), May 2009. One of a kind zoo because most animals are free to roam around the grounds, and people are most welcome to pet them. Of course, children has to be supervised by their adult companions. Anyway, there's a butterfly sanctuary in the zoo, and although people aren't allowed to touch any of the butterflies, people can always take pictures of them.

One of the friendliest species of butterflies I have met was this kind - which is very much willing to pose for pictures. It doesn't fly that easily, giving me a chance to take as much pictures as I want. Actually, I was able to let it sit in my finger, but because no one is allowed to touch the butterflies, I put it back in the plant branch after taking some pictures.
