This was at the butterfly house of Michigan State University that just opened for the season. Taken with SL

and SL90-280. [cross posted in the SL topic area]

Thanks for looking,

Beautiful sharp image.  Particularly like the tiny red spots on the wing. Who knew MSU had a butterfly house.

Thank you. Yes, there has been one for a number of years. It is inside the plant sciences building next to the childrens' gardens.

Tom, fotografr and jenniferx,

 

Thank you for the nice comments.  Fotografr she is beautiful, educated and pregnant!  It's impossible to see in my picture, but when I took that shot she was in the process of depositing an egg on the leaf of that plant.  Jennifer, they are very gentle.  At this butterfly house, there are sponges scattered around that are saturated with honey or some kind of nectar.  Children dip their fingers in the sponges and the butterflys land on their hands to lick the nectar.  I have several pictures of 3-5 year old children mesmerized at the insects on their fingers.
