Spring break, wonderful weather, so daughter Shann and I headed into the city yesterday to see some butterflies at the Museum of Science.
The Butterfly Garden is a beautiful place; especially after a long, dreary winter. A virtual kaleidoscope of color and pattern greets you as you enter the room. Green, blue, pink, orange, yellow - nearly all of the colors of the rainbow are there. The Garden room is small, warm and steamy; just the way the butterflies like it. As they meander from flower to foliage, they flutter around you and bump into you - a truly amazing experience. Sometimes the butterflies like to land and hitch a ride; visitors are advised to check for hitchhikers as they leave the room. Photographs are encouraged, and if I'd spent a little more time, I probably could have shot hundreds of photos. But, it got a little warm for me in there, so I did reluctantly leave after fifteen minutes or so. Even so, I'm glad I brought my camera as I was able to get in a few good shots:
