Butterflies




When my daughter Genevieve was home visiting, we packed a picnic and head for Montreal 's botanical garden to see the butterflies. Each year, for almost 2 months, their greenhouse is alive with butterflies of all species. This event attracts many people and professional photographers. Felt a bit cheap with my little 100$ digital pocket camera. Nevertheless, i managed to take some beautiful pictures. Butterflies are such wonderful insects. I was observing my daughters, my hubby and even the people around us and i smiled to see how we all marveled at their beauty.

It was a wonderful day that i will cherish in my heart for a long time.

Very gorgeous butterflys! I still remember to this day as a child going to a butterfly park - they are such amazing creatures. Every year I get caterpillars from insectlore.com for the playgroup so the children can watch the amazing life of a caterpillar and then it turning into a butterfly. So magical!

Your photographs are wonderful even without a 'posh' camera. You are so right butterflies are majical.
Have a good weekend.

I took my daughter to butterfly emporiums when she was younger, it was always an amazing experience. Your pictures are beautiful, it isn't the camera that counts, it is the picture. Some of the most amazing pictures were taken with plastic cameras. Thank you for sharing.
