A Different View of Spring Butterflies

Sharing is caring!

The surest sign of spring in Grand Rapids is the Butterflies are Blooming exhibit at Frederik Meijer Gardens. Despite the chilly temps outside and snow still on the ground, every March and April the hot and humid Meijer Gardens Conservatory fills with tropical butterflies and thousands of visitors.

We live in a world where it seems everyone has a camera, so my goal when photographing butterflies at the Gardens is to find a different angle. I have lots of the typical side-profile-of-pretty-butterflies shots, but here are some images from this year’s exhibit that aren’t the usual.
