When we decided to go to the “Butterflies Live!” exhibit with friends the other day, I had not exactly registered the “live!” part.
The exhibit was at the botantical gardens in a greenhouse-like room loaded with plants and water-misters and – free-flying butterflies.
They were so beautiful and so fragile-looking. Some perched on plants and flapped their wings, some nibbled on fruit, some fluttered past my face, some rested on the ground (careful not to step on them, man!).
We spent at least a half-hour with the butterflies that day.
