Butterfly at Bowring Park
Inspired by a group of images taken by Karen whose photography I admire, I ventured to the Bowring Park greenhouse to capture the butterflies brought to St. John's from the Deer Lake Insectarium. Apparently , the entire population of St. John's ( 150,000) had the same idea and we were packed like sardines in a hot tropical environment. I snapped a few shots and fled !
Identification of this beautiful creature would be much appreciated.
