Photo of the Day: Smithsonian Butterfly Garden, Washington DC

The late-fall weather this week while I was on vacation in DC was not conducive for bringing out beautiful butterflies, but I imagine they appear in great profusion in other times of the year. In any case, as I walked down on the Ninth Street side of the National Museum of Natural History as a shortcut to somewhere else, I was so taken by the Smithsonian Butterfly Habitat Garden that I took this shot.

Perhaps I was so struck by this scene because of the four different butterfly habitats represented here:  wetland, meadow, wood's edge and backyard. Well, that and the colors of fall, of course.
