Dancing Wings Butterfly Garden – May Term Day 4

Today we had to switich things up due to the weather. BayCreek Paddling was not an option, so we headed over to the Dancing Wings Butterfly Garden  at The Strong.  This was great for many of the first time photographers, as there were plenty of opportunities to get some great shots of the birds and butterflies.

 

Flora of Madagascar

As we travelled all over Madagascar, every once in awhile,I took my eyes off the many animals and noticed some pretty amazing plants and flowers.  The poinsettia tree was the most unusual thing I saw, as I am used to seeing this as a small plant during the holidays.  Here are some shots that I took along the way.DSC_0205.JPGDSC_0200.JPGDSC_0380.JPGDSC_0215.JPGDSC_1292.JPGDSC_1277.JPG

Lamberton Conservatory

Today I went to the Lamberton Conservatory in Highland Park.  It only cost me $2 to get in, and I was able to take some pretty great shots of plants and flowers that are there for the public to see.  It is full of water features, quails, and well worth the visit. We went early when it opened at 10:00 a.m,  and there was hardly anyone there.  I highly recommend visiting here. It is a great place to relax as well as to practice some macrophotography. They do not allow professional photographers in during business hours, so I am glad I visited now.DSC_0001.JPGDSC_0002.JPGDSC_0003.JPGDSC_0006.JPGDSC_0010.JPGDSC_0011.JPGDSC_0015.JPG
