Butterflies Live! At Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden

Butterflies Live! At Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden

 

When Dolores and I are in the area of Richmond, Virginia, one of the places we love to visit is Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. The gardens are beautiful and we enjoy photographing the flowers and plants. We are annual members and try to go there several times each year.

Butterfiles Live! is a very special live butterfly exhibit in the Conservatory.  We, of course, like to photograph the butterflies as well as the flowers. This indoor exhibit allows visitors to get up close to hundreds of tropical butterflies and explore their origins, preferred habitats and lifecycles.

If you can, allow several hours for your visit. You will want to walk through the extensive gardens and the Conservatory. Photographing the butterflies will be fun for all of your family members.

Dolores and I usually enjoy lunch in the Garden Café

Don’t forget to allow time to visit the gift shop before you complete your visit.
