We visited the “World of Butterflies” opened in Marikina City within a week from its opening day in 2004.
It would have been nice to photograph butterflies in flight but that’s easier said than done. Mostly, I had to wait until they had alighted before taking photos.

This butterfly must be tired—kids chased them all over the place.
And this is a hungry butterfly sipping a flower’s nectar.
Another hungry butterfly sipping the nextar of a yellow flower.
Ah, the best photo from the batch. This orange and black butterfly was obliging enough to pose before the camera.
Another tired butterfly.
I wish there were more butterflies with such bright colors. I think they’re more expensive that’s why most of the butterflies there were the more common ones.
Are these butterflies playing or fighting over the water?
