They have many varieties of butterflies and it is very nice to walk through. It is hot in the building, but it always is with a butterfly house.

How can you complain about a thousand butterfly buzzing, well not buzzing, but flying around you? Some alight on you, and isn't that a treat. I did some yoga and really go into the zone. But, it's tough photographing them in motion.

My friend had never been in a butterfly conservatory, and was thrilled when 3 butterflies chose to light on her head. The enclosure is beautiful with plants and flowers and places to sit to enjoy the butterflies. There are flyers to help identify the species.

Although I have been to the island a few times, we had never been here. My whole family enjoyed it. The butterflies landed on all of us and we captured some beautiful pictures

Thousands of amazing butterflies from all over the world. The one that looked more like a black and yellow bird acted like a hummingbird. Other than the humidity was a bit uncomfortable, we enjoyed seeing the variety of butterflies.
