Great shots, the colors of the rainbow on the "flutterbys". So pretty I assume that they are in an enclosed area, are they with the birds also?

It's very easy to get close, sometimes they are too close because they land on either your arm or camera

The birds and butterflies are all together in a conservatory. Great place, but very hot and muggy. I forget the temp they keep it at but you'll work up a sweat just standing there looking at everything

I love the orange one--and the before and after shots of the green and turquoise swallowtail

Beautiful finches, too! Definitely a place to visit if I ever get up there!

for sharing!
