More photos from my last trip to the Butterfly Pavillion at the History Museum in Los Angeles. I'm not even going to pretend to know for sure what these are so please correct me if I'm wrong. You can click on any image for a larger view.

Painted Lady?


And this little Buckeye landed on my arm and stayed there while I walked around and took photos. Some of the kids there were jealous. Na Na-na-na Na! LOL!

My favourite is the cabbage white on the white flowers! Subdued colouring lets me focus on the shapes!!

Wow! I especially like the brown and pink one because I love those two colors together...And that's so funny, I live in a town called Buckeye!

Maybe I can help identify, but in case I make a mistake...
the one with red could be small postman butterfly.
