Lionfish & Butterflies


An unexpected visit to Sioux Falls meant that I had time to explore the Sertoma Butterfly House and Marine Cove, which I’d never been to before. As a kid, I thought butterflies were hard to catch…try photographing them! The Blue Morpho butterflies were my favorite, and of course those proved to be the most difficult to photograph because they closed their beautiful wings to a dull, brown camouflage every time they landed.
