Butterfly shows are always so enchanting.  The last time I was at one was several years ago, on a trip to Victoria Island.

Sounds like fun Roy. Do they let you into the enclosure so you can "walk among the butterflies"? We were able to do that at an exhibit we went to a couple of years ago.

I just love this show and hope it comes here again at some point. It's quite magical to be in the midst of all of those butterflies. I look forward to seeing your photos. D

That sounds like an awesome event.  My daughter-in-law loves butterflies, too bad we don't live a bit closer to enjoy this event!

Larry and I would enjoy this Roy. Walking  and seeing them fly around would be exciting to see!
