Delicate and light, constantly in motion, mesmerizing and beautiful –  these are the words that come to my mind in describing the Blooming Butterfly exhibit at Como Park.  Yesterday morning’s gray and cool weather provided the perfect conditions for a photographer’s visit to the exhibit.  The  lack of sunshine and temps in the low 60’s allowed the butterflies to rest and not be as active as when the sun is bright and the air is warm.  The exhibit is filled with butterflies from Asia, Africa, North and South America, although only one of these can be found native to Minnesota.  Some are bright with multi colors, others are one or two colors, but beautiful just this same.  This Paper Kite butterfly settled among the bright flowers and rested, as if posing for this photograph.
