Future monarch Prince George, who celebrates his first birthday Tuesday, is seen looking at butterflies with fascination in two newly-released photos.
The youngest royal family member has his eyes set on the beautiful insect during an outing with his doting parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton.
The images were shot at the Sensational Butterflies exhibit at London's Natural History Museum by John Stillwell of the UK's Press Association wire service.
He also took the photo released Saturday of Prince George walking (running, some might say, as much as a toddler can do so) in his Petit Bateau overalls.
"He was fascinated to see the them fly but a little scared when they got a bit close to him," Stillwell says of the prince's encounter with the Blue Morpho butterfly.
Stillwell says he kept his distance and used a long lens so William and Kate, both 32, could relax and enjoy the peace at the exhibit with their son."
