It poured most of the day here in the PNW, so I decided it was the perfect day to take Lael to the Pacific Science Center. After all, the butterfly garden is under glass and seems like a tropical paradise no matter what the weather.
I continue to be amazed, and pleased, even after several visits to the Butterfly Garden as I continually find butterflies that I’ve never photographed before, and I love seeing the ones I’ve previously photographed.
There seemed to be several nearly black butterflies, with a slight bluish tinge floating around today. I thought this one that had landed on a bright yellow flower was particularly impressive:
But my favorite butterfly of the day was this tan and white one that seemed everywhere, but looked particularly beautiful next to the same yellow flower:
I spent most of day doing what Lael told me to do, so it was nice to see her directing the Seattle Center Central Fountain, rather than me.
Despite the fact that I saw the fountain the year it was originally built, I still love watching the water rise and fall in time with the music.
