let 'em fly

Today I accompanied my friends Christine and Stewart and their beautiful 2 (almost 3) year old daughter Mackenzie to the Butterfly Conservatory in Niagara Falls.


The first few minutes were completely overwhelming. You are immediately hit by humid air and the smell of thick vegetation and what must be thousands of butterflies flying around you. Every time I turned, they seemed to be flying straight toward me. Once I got my bearings, I was able to slowly walk through and admire these beautiful, delicate creatures. I was very happy to be taking my new camera for a test drive. (I love you 12 times optical zoom!) Here are a couple of samples. More are available for your viewing pleasure on my Flickr stream.

Lully pictures there. The camera's doing well :)

I used to love Butterfly houses as a kid. Still do to be honest!

It was my first time at a Butterfly house and I will definitely go back. Apparently they are building one about 10 minutes from my house. Maybe I'll be a better photographer by the time that one opens!
