Enjoying magic wings…


Beautiful and graceful, varied and enchanting, small but approachable, butterflies lead you to the sunny side of life.  And everyone deserves a little sunshine.  ~Jeffrey Glassberg

I couldn’t put it better myself.  While I know very little about butterflies, I always like seeing one.  They definitely light up the world.

Well, after a few false starts, my daughter Carrie and I finally got the chance to go to Magic Wings, a butterfly conservatory in South Deerfield, Massachusetts.  And we had a delightful time.

I got so many photos I don’t even know where to begin so I guess I will just post a few and go from there.
 
Like I said, I know very little about butterflies so I don’t know any details about what kind these are.  And they weren’t flying around with tags on them or anything.  If there’s someone out there who knows and wants to let me know, I would appreciate it.  Meanwhile, I will just enjoy the fact that they are beautiful, graceful, varied, enchanting and approachable.  Hope you like them, too.

Lovely butterflies! They look so different from any I have ever seen in "real life" (aka not photos)

the 4th shot is just wonderful - the way the wings seem to drape down. :)

How fun! No idea of their identities, only that they are mobile pieces of art.
