Butterfly Gardens

We headed to the Butterfly Exhibit at Brookside Gardens on Wednesday morning.  It was a rainy morning.  But, inside the greenhouse, everything was bright and cheerful.  

Before we entered the greenhouse, the workers showed us some cocoons and caterpillars.

Can you find the caterpillar?

Julied, did you realize that your family coordinated so well with the blues and yellows?  Well done :)

Some of the kids.  

Searching for butterflies.  

We found one!

Some of the butterflies were very friendly.  

Check out these lepidopterologists.

 Although, her sister was dying to have one land on her.  Theia was not so happy with this situation.  Ironic, don't you think?

After searching and observing tons of butterflies, it was time for a rest.  

So, we headed to Cici's since our picnic was rained out.  Not a bad trade in my opinion.  (But, now that I realize how close bathing suit season is.  It was probably not the best decision.)
