I’m a sucker for butterflies and hummingbirds. When I discovered the Butterfly Pavilion in Westminster, Colorado (about 15 miles north of Denver) I had to stop and check it out.
Given that Halloween is fast approaching they had special exhibits of bugs and spiders. I’m not much of a bug person, and definitely don’t like spiders, but this fish in one of their aquariums was one I had never seen before.
And now on to the main attraction. Before going in to the large enclosure where the live butterflies and moths were I passed a display case with many deceased specimens. Not knowing how many varieties of live ones I might actually see I thought I’d better get some pictures. As you’ll see in the next post, though, there actually was a very good selection of live ones flying around. I got pictures of as many as I could. Some were just too quick and never stayed put very long. Some were rather frisky and were perhaps pursuing love interests so I thought I’d respect their privacy. It is a neat place and the kids (and adults) really seemed to enjoy it.
