Alex - May I ask? Have you been shooting your butterflies at Fairchild Gardens? I haven't been there in over a year and just noticed they opened the Wings of the Tropic conservatory. I'm considering paying them a visit.
Yes I have. Wonderful place.
Go early before the crowds.
I normally go in around 8:30 am (they open early in summer) and go to the butterfly garden for an hour. That's where the local species are. My Atalas and Monarchs, plus spiders are from there. The conservatory opens at 9:30 and it is fairly empty of crowds till 10 or so. Not to be missed.
Thanks for the quick reply. I didn't realize they opened so early during the summer. Your butterfly pictures are great. I have such a hard time shooting them. I'll check the conservatory as soon I possible. Thanks again!
