Magic Wings trip

    Yesterday, we went to the Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory in South Deerfield, MA. It was very beautiful and the kids loved it, especially Maggie. Maggie got to use a friend's camera and took these pictures:

Blue Morpho butterfly landed with the gardens in the background.

One of the many interesting plants.

Dual butterflies on a tree.

Butterfly on an orchid.

Taking this one from both sides.

There are also birds running around all over...

...and in the trees as well.

See the butterflies "straw" curled in front of it?
    I did do a bit of cropping on 3 or 4 of these, but other than that these are all pictures taken by Maggie. She is turning into quite the little photographer. The one on the bottom is my favorite.
    What is not portrayed in these pictures is the sheer number of butterflies and plants there are in the conservatory. It is an absolutely amazing place. It is not very big, but there must be thousands of butterflies. There is even a koi pond with 4 huge fish in it. It is a place worth checking out.
