On the Wings of Butterflies...

Nature's message

was always there
for us to see.


It was written

on the wings

of

butterflies

~Kjell B. Sandved~

We spent the day at the Butterfly Conservatory in Niagara Falls.

Home to over 2,000 butterflies in a tropical rain forest setting.

We had butterflies in our hair, on our hands, legs, and for much of the time, one sat happily on my camera :-)

A magical spot & one I can't wait to return to!

Now I need to pick up a butterfly identification book and match names with photos ( I took 140 today)!
