Tropical Butterfly Photos from Butterfly World,
Fort Lauderdale, Florida

by William T. Hark, M.D.

Stock Photography and Video


The following photos were taken by me while at Butterfly World in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The butterflies are kept in an enclosed "butterfly house." Although not as exciting as photographing butterflies in the jungles of Central America, Butterfly World provides an opportunity to easily observe and photograph a variety of colorful tropical butterflies in a natural setting.
