Butterflies, orchids, children, and other miracles of nature…

Today I’m going to focus on the Conservatory and Butterfly House at Richmond’s amazing Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens. The children – not to mention the grown-ups – absolutely loved it.

The butterfly habitat is a carefully managed mist-saturated hothouse. Very warm, intensely humid, beautiful. It makes for some interesting photography. The best images are probably those featuring the children trying to sneak up on butterflies with their magnifying glass.

Enjoy the pictures. They are definitely worth the few minutes it will take to scroll through.

Peace – DEREK
