The atmosphere is warm and damp. There is a rushing sound of a waterfall in the distance. Colourful flowers and butterflies abound. Where is this utopia in the middle of winter? In southern Ontario? Yes! The Butterfly Conservatory, located in Niagara Falls, is a little slice of summer in a cold and dreary winter. During the holidays, we once again made the trip out there for a feast for the senses. Well, maybe not taste so much, although this little guy seems to be enjoying this flower quite well...
It's tough to catch the Blue Morpho with their wings open. They are a beautiful brilliant blue, which you can only observe during flight.
I caught a tiny peek in this photo, after waiting and snapping quickly every time they so much as moved!
I am amazed time and time again when I consider how a mere caterpillar changes into a beautiful winged creature. How he shows his loving and creative hand in the tiny butterfly! How great is God!
I think the waterfall was the best part of the trip for C-note. The whole walk through he was asking if we could see it. The sound of it kept distracting him. He could hear it, but not see it! After many assurances that we indeed will see it, yes, soon, yes, almost there, pretty close, and finally! :)
