Just like many other places in the country, it's spring break week here in Michigan! So today my mother in law and I grabbed my 10 year old great niece drove up to Grand Rapids to meet up with another niece and her 5 kids for a day at Meijer Gardens. Their Butterflies in Bloom exhibit is very popular, and I've ALWAYS wanted to go. Today I found out why it's so popular. It. Is. AWESOME. So many butterflies flitting and floating, and landing sometimes right on your shoulder, or your finger - or even, I would imagine, your nose.
I couldn't believe that this one in particular - a Swallowtail of some variety, according to my guidebook - sat still for me (as well as several other folks lucky enough to be in the right little cove at the right time).
There are literally 100's of butterflies all over inside this beautiful facility; there was no way to capture very many at one time. Constant fluttering....
Oh, and I probably should mention that I'll be participating in another one of ZNetShows challenges next month, too! So stay tuned for the post about what is sure to be another generous pile of beads from them to work with, and then - probably sometime in early to mid June - the REVEAL.
Hope you're finding some awesome in YOUR day too!
