Butterfly Magic

A real quick break between the Redington Pass adventures, I wanted to let you know that there is one more month left to the Butterfly Magic exhibit going on at the Tucson Botanical Gardens.  After April, you'll have to wait until Fall.  Here are some of my shots taken in early March.

You'll see these little food containers all around for the butterflies to grab a "snack". (above) Here is a Morphos taking a quick break from flying.

It does get warm in the exhibit so bring some bottled water with you.  You may sweat a bit:)

Watch where you step as they are all over the place.

They many times may decide to land on you.

Butterfly Magic is at the Tucson Botanical Gardens for a few more weeks! It's a great place to bring kids or just learn about the many butterflies flying around the garden. Bring your camera:) Stay tuned for tomorrow's post on Tanque Verde Falls in Redington Pass.


  1. Your pictures are really great!!! So are the butterflies!!!
    I went to the Tucson Botanical Gardens four years ago, when I visited your city. It was amazing experience for me!!!
    I am looking forward to the Tanque Verde Falls post,

  2. Thank you!!! I really enjoyed putting this series of pics together. Thanks for reading.

  3. Awesome butterfly photos! I wonder where they get those 'cap holders' for the butterflies. That seems like a nice little extra for them...besides flowers.

  4. The ones exhibited at our Botanical Garden are not as exotic as these ones! Great pictures.

  5. What a wonderful place! Your pictures are fantastic. I wonder what they put in those little cups for them to eat?


Thanks for stopping by!
