Last week was March/Spring break so it was time to head out for some adventure. Every year, for about 2 months, this butterfly exhibit comes to our Botanical Gardens. The last time I went was when Dahlia was 3 and in a stroller. (She doesn't remember but I've got the pictures to prove it.) I had forgotten how magical it is and I think I have to go back in a few weeks and bring Milana this time. She'll love it!
Below you can see the roof holding structure of the Olympic Stadium through the entrance of the gardens. A pretty awesome sight.
When you enter into the butterfly exhibit, it's almost overwhelming the sheer number and variety of butterflies - just flying free. They're so fast - I was dizzy trying to capture them (on my camera). And there seemed to be as many amazing cameras around too. I kept oogling everyone's equipment (and remembering how much I still want that macro lens.)
Dahlia and her bff, Angel, are always assured of a good time together. And even though they were a bit afraid of all the flying butterflies - being together trumps everything.
These two beauties had the good taste to sit still for such a long time. They may have been asleep. It was rare to catch one, not flitting about.
This globe was at the exit. I gave it a spin and snapped it where it stopped. I can't help but think of the suffering in Japan right now as I look at it on this globe.
I took over 300 images that morning so I may have to do another post next week. Too much beauty not to share more of it.
Bring on Spring!
