Blue Morpho and White Peacock

Early last week I attended a butterfly photography class at Powell Gardens during their Butterfly Festival. There were different butterflies from North and Central America, but the star of the show was the Blue Morpho. Notice how the blue is on only one side of the wing?

The butterfly in the last two pictures is the White Peacock.

Hopefully I will post more of Powell Gardens later. They have the most beautiful chapel on the grounds as well.
