Live Butterfly Pavilion at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum in DC

Where I was, a little over a week ago:

I love butterfly watching and could sit for hours in a glasshouse, taking in the peace and serenity.

That is, if I were to be allowed in after hours and on my own.

In general people just rush through this kind of exhibit, seemingly intent on making as much noise as possible, with scant regard for either the subject of the display, or the other guests who might wish to linger.

Hubbie has some great shots taken when we have visited similar exhibits, both here at home in the UK and in Florida, US.

Great shots and I hope that you enjoyed your day,

Gorgeous shots HKatz. The last time we went to a butterfly exhibit it was at the Bronx Zoo and they were just lovely to watch.
Hope you had a nice trip!

@ Yvonne - people at this exhibit were fairly quiet, except for one young child who was freaking out at the large butterflies (I felt bad for that kid)

@ Naida - I need to go to the Bronx Zoo again... last time I went there I was in the 5th grade on a class field trip :)

Thank you both for stopping by, and for your kind words.

The St. Louis Zoo has a butterfly pavillion and they have it timed so that some come out of chrysalis each day. If you time it right, you can be there for it. It's marvelous.

Relyn, that would be spectacular to see.
