    Some recent shots. These guys were really active compared to my last visit and posed a challenge.

    Thanks Jon. There ok but they lack the sharpness I was hoping for and I almost did not post them. The damn things kept flapping and moving and I had no tripod. The lighting was poor so I used a bounce flash on most. I will try again sometime.

    ...but you did and obviously knew they were excellent captures! dont ya hate ending up in situations requiring props left behind? still, your images are wonderfully captured.

    Thanks guys. Dan, the Conservatory is on the Canadian side between the Lewiston Bridge and Rainbow Bridge, very close to the Spanish cable car. It is open daily and cost $11 CAN to get in. There are hundreds of Butterflies and it is very easy to get them. I should have asked the best time to shoot them as they were very active this time. The last time they were mostly just sitting and much easier to shoot. They land right on your camera and head and you have to watch where you walk as they are also on the ground. Great place.

    On the weekends the place is packed. Early morning weekday is best. Caution, it is very hot and humid in there. I did not have a problem with fogging but I could see it happening especially if your equipment is cold when you first come in. Dress lightly and there is a coat check.
