Went to the "Butterflies Alive" exhibit at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History with some friends who were visiting from Monterey.
I tried to photograph every variety of butterfly I saw there. They were accustomed to the people, so it was easy to get close to most of them.
Many of the butterflies had different designs or colors on the inside and outside of their wings, like this one in the next two photos.
This one looks similar to a Monarch from the outer wings, but the photos above and below shoe that it's a different species.
At the end of the day, we had just time to peek into one of the museum exhibits before closing time.
I love the artwork on the museum van!
