Click here to read the photo-documented introduction to the life of a Butterfly from butterfly egg to adult butterfly

A blossoming flower garden without butterflies is like nature without flowers. butterflies are like jewels of nature to add color and beauty to flowers, to kiss flowers and to enjoy the flowers' nectar and love.

This first group of butterfly wallpapers is from the tropical Philippine island at or near sea level taken in the butterfly garden Boracay

The life of a Butterfly is as magic as the life-cycle of a human being. Starting the life in as an egg, then larva or caterpillar - feeding on his preferred food plant and then turns into a pupa to become a butterfly, feeding on nectar only - nectar is love produced by flowers as a gift to nature or mankind.

Attracting butterflies into your garden is easy - making them stay and reproduce in your garden is easy as well - all you need is some basic knowledge as given here to fully understand the life cycle of butterflies and thus to understand the different needs during the different phases of life forms a butterfly has from egg to butterfly.

This second group of butterfly wallpapers is from the Philippine mountains

Mountain butterflies in the Philippines are very different from those down on or near sea level. Above all I noticed a much larger number of butterflies in the mountains. The below butterfly photos have been taken in or around Baguio City and in some area I encountered an abundance of wild butterflies. Abundance almost like in the Butterfly garden with up to a dozen on a small are of 2-3 sqm. Most of the mountain butterflies that come in large quantities are very tiny - around 1 cm wing-span. In the mountains the butterflies tend to be all of gentle bright colors, while at sea level I encounter far more larger butterflies and mostly darker colors.

Some of these abundant tiny butterflies are hard if at all to photograph. first of all they hide in the grass or in bushes - often many minutes without flying, hence invisible . while others are flying continuously without settling down on a blossom, The behavior of butterflies varies very much from specie to specie, while some are very slow - even love to be on human body for minutes - others may mostly fly and if on a blossom then only for a second or so ... too short to take pictures. Hence butterflies are first of all made to be enjoyed directly rather than on a picture. Butterflies are cute and some apparently love to be photographed for extended periods. Like girls - some butterflies sit on a blossom or leaf and pose for pictures while turning slowly around ... looking at you

Tropical butterflies Philippines

Butterfly photography is an ongoing year round hobby and goes along with my flower photography in tropical flower gardens, parks and jungle. There are times with near zero butterflies flying around - typically during rainy days or rainy season. Or there are areas with too little nectar plants, or shelter plants for butterflies to feed on - like in city areas. Amazingly I have seen plenty of nectar drinking insects on lotus flowers, but never a butterfly drinking lotus nectar. The below image group is my latest contribution, a butterfly photo collection of many months traveling through the beautiful scenic Philippine islands. Enjoy!

A true butterfly paradise - Mindoro island

The most exotic and most colorful butterflies so far seen in the Philippine islands are on Mindoro island. Most of them are too fast to be photographed - at least during my brief visit on the island. I found a large variety of bright colored butterflies along the small tropical river. Hidden in the many flower-fields and the rich blossoming nature are large butterflies of 10cm and larger as well as many small butterflies 1-2 cm in size.
