It's been a busy easter weekend, one of the things was a visit to a butterfly farm.

At the edge of protected nature area "Zwaakseweel" middle in the zeeuwse polders you find butterfly garden "Berkenhof".
With it's 1400m² its the biggest of the Netherlands.

All images taken with the FZ5

Enjoy - Ronny/Rosemarie

I enjoyed your butterfly shots Ronny, they are one of my favorite things to shoot but I do not see a lot of them. I have never been to a butterfly garden but I am going to go to one at the first opportunity.

Lovely series. Well captured. I particularly enjoyed the butterfly with the concentric circles, never seen one like that.

Excellent series of shots. They make me wish it was summer so i could go out shooting butterflies myself....not many around yet :cry:

Very nice series!! I think butterflies are one of the nicest and prettiest bugs to take photos of!!!!

These are very nice. You had a nice selection to work with. You say this is the largest butterfly farm in the Netherlands. How many others are there may I ask?

Very well done, Ronnie. I don't know of a butterfly farm in my area, so it is interesting to know about them.

thanks tcook, it is sure a worth a visit.

thanks rafinmlb, if I'm not wrong it's an owl butterfly the shot above has it with its wings open.

thanks mark, in Belgium were having more than normal, just the effect of the real (not existing) winter, took these two (with another camera - sorry) a few days ago.

thanks annie, I can only concur they are only so easily scared.

thanks happy peasant, just searching the web I found 4 others in the Netherlands and I also found 3 in Belgium, probably missed some to. So in a radius of about 150km I've got 8 :?

thanks bayourebel, I never expected to have this many in my neighborhood.

Two more nice shots there Ronnie. Both species i`m hoping I`ll get in my garden this summer.

Very nice set of butterfly pictures. The composition and clarity of #6 really stands out to me.
