Butterflies Go Free

I visited a "Butterflies Go Free" exhibition 
with my daughter and Grandkids, 
during Easter weekend. (2017)
An annual exhibit featuring thousands of 
live colourful butterflies and moths,
 set free, fluttering all around us, 
in the large greenhouse.

What a delightful experience.
These butterflies are here for a few weeks,
then gathered up and send to another city,

A little booklet is available 
which helped me identify
 most of the species above...

A most enjoyable visit,
