Butterflies

This is another one of those posts that is about not having your camera with you.  We went out to the Botanic Gardens for a walk around since it was a nice day.  They have a temporary exhibit in the gardens that is showing butterflies.  It is one of those tent structures with double doors so that they can check you don’t have any unwanted guests on your clothing when you leave.

I didn’t have my camera with me but I did have the phone.  It would have to do.  The butterflies were gorgeous to see.  So many varieties and beautiful colors and shapes.  It would be even better if the visitors paid a small amount of attention to the rules such as not trying to pick them up but I guess some people are idiots and there is nothing you can do about that.

I want to head back before the display is finished.  Whether our schedule will allow that or not, I don’t know.  I do hope I can go back.  Watching a butterfly emerge from its chrysalis and inflate its wings was quite incredible!
