We have returned from our few days of driving. This time we went north to Mission Beach, then on to Cairns and up to Kuranda. It was a very nice few days. Just over 1200km covered in four days.
I took 413 photos during the four days. I probably deleted 100 because they were crappy, but those are pretty good odds! I love to use the macro setting and get up close to bugs and little things. We visited the butterfly house at Kuranda, so I shall now, self-indulgently, make you view my photos. I have no commentary to go along with them because I don’t know enough stuff about these particular butterflies. I just know that I like them.
Closed up and camouflaged to look like a leaf (taken outdoors)
Cairns Birdwing – these are enormous butterflies. (taken outdoors)
The rest are taken in the butterfly house…
looking rather tatty
My favourite butterfly – not very big, but just beautiful.
Just about to take off in flight
One that landed on Pippy’s finger and stayed there for the longest time. Even while he was walking around.
It cost $15 to get in, we were there for almost an hour, it was incredibly humid and hot, but these photos make every minute and dollar spent oh so worthwhile!
