Butterflies Flutterby.

Back Bay Wildlife Refuge, in the southern end of Virginia Beach, is a beautiful place to take an afternoon walk.  While I didn't see any large wildlife, I did see lots of small, flying things, and wonderful flora!

Hi there - nice shots of the insects. Can’t understand why most people dismiss most insects as just "bugs"!

No need to be afraid of the Emus, they have a very small brain and tend to run off as soon as a cloud passes over the sun!
