Butterflies @ Lewis Ginter

A friend and I went went to the botanical garden today to see their butterfly exhibit -- basically, they release butterflies into one of their galleries.




















The weather here has been pretty humid...but it was NOTHING compared to the inside of the gallery -- they were pumping in water vapor...I guess for the butterflies.

Absolutely beautiful. You take such amazingly good photos. I could never achieve these images if I had the best camera in the world.

Well, thank you, although I never think of it as skillful -- I have a point and shoot camera -- which is what I basically do! The "macro" mode on the camera helps a lot for these close ups -- and the butterflies cooperated :)

Perhaps I try too hard? LOL, but no matter how I try to see the scene from a unique perspective and point the lens, I do not achieve anywhere near your results. You have a gift.

Ooh, I can't wait...
I am excited! My daughter and I went to the butterfly exhibit in Montreal. It was very, very cool. We will definitely have to go. Thank you for letting us know about it!
