butterflies and blossoms....

We went to Como Zoo and Conservatory today to see the blooming butterfly experience. This it he third year it's been there and the first time we've seen it. I guess it will be done in Sept. and won't be back, so I'm glad we made it! The butterflies and the blooming lotus around the conservatory were quite stunning!

These are gorgeous shots! I see Chloe is turning into a little shutterbug like Mama!
We got to see a butterfly exhibit in Florida a number of years ago and loved it too.

How beautiful the butterflies are. Here in Australia in my state of Victoria we have a fabulous Butterfly House at our Melbourne Zoo. I always love going in there to see the butterflies

your photos are absolutely gorgeous. I used to live north of Bellingham, WA and had a huge Dahlia garden...it's the only thing I miss about the PNW! I loved my walk with you here this morning!
