This Blue Morph  I had a hard time getting a photo as they flit around so much and when they land they rarely open their wings  but Papa got a good photo of him !

                                            Mr Turtle was lazing on the rock as we walked by !

The Conservatory was beautiful with waterfalls , tropical plants and blooms and little streams trickling along the walk ways !

                            A very tranquil beautiful place as butterfly's danced all around us  and birds flew by!

I could of stayed there all day and just watched the butterfly’s and birds but boy was it humid in there  but we had a good day and enjoyed the beauty these creature's had to offer us !

I have collected lot’s of Butterfly things over the years from Tea cups to candle holders , hair clips to stickers and have a photo collection of the ones we get here and now I have these to add to my collection .

                                       Until then hope you all have a good day !

Morning from Canada,
Still on holidays thought I would drop in . Cant keep the old girl from spying on my bloggers. I have been to a butterfly
Con. It is so amazing. My young son lives half hour away from one . Does this one have a garden outside to walk before you enter in. I found it very hot inside but they have to be. Neat how the butterflies eat apples on a plate. Did you have any land on you? Glad you enjoyed. It is an experience everyone should go too.

I love that you are wearing a butterfly shirt! I wonder what the butterflies made of that.
The pics are amazing and the butterfly at the top really caught my eye...clever fellow disguised as a snake!

We went to a butterfly farm a few years ago in the Cayman Islands, was pretty cool, never knew there were so many different kinds of butterflies!

That is an amazing place to visit. I'd love to go but daughter and husband visited there some years ago and I have a gorgeous tea cupa and saucer and a table runner from there. Gorgeous photos.

We have been to several butterfly displays too and they are simply amazing in the diversity and beauty, but as you said very humid for obvious reasons. It's so hard not to keep taking photos and enjoyed seeing yours and Papa's, Elaine. I also image the camera gear gets a bit heavy at times.
Thanks too for the July 4th wishes and belated Happy Canada Day!

Awesome shots, all the vibrant colors, and yes, some of those species I have never seen also.
Love your butterfly shirt :)
