All Kinds of Butterfly Silhouettes

With something that involves quite a few limitations (where the subject matter is concerned, anyway) as silhouettes, you might think that there’s not much to see in this collection of butterfly silhouettes. But if you stick around for a bit and browse a smidge more, you might think differently afterward.

  • Taking Flight with the Butterflies – “Flying Butterfly Silhouette” shows what lots of little girls dream of being able to do and what lots of us no-longer-little girls once dreamed of being able to do. (It’s either that or the girl in the picture is actually possessed or a sacrifice to the butterfly gods…
  • Industry Standard – Because you can’t go wrong with a handful of good old butterfly silhouettes, we offer you “Butterfly Side Silhouette,” “Free Butterfly Silhouette,” “Butterfly Clip Art Silhouette,” and “Printable Butterfly Silhouette.”
  • Getting Fancy with Photos – In “Butterfly Flower Silhouette” and “Small Butterfly Silhouette,” the butterfly silhouettes are more of the photographers’ manipulations of light and angles.
  • Pretty in Pink – Who says you have to stick to black for the actual silhouette? “Butterfly Vector Silhouette” clearly shows you that you can have more fun with your butterfly silhouettes.
