On July 13 we drove to Meersburg am Bodensee (Lake Constance) and boarded a boat to Mainau, the garden island.

Stunning!!! That floral staircase waterfall is incredible and I love your evening shots.

Thanks so much for posting these. If you hadn't I would never have know about Mainau. Now, it's on my bucket list of places to visit.

Great job!!

Thanks, Daniel. The butterflies were in the butterfly pavilion on Mainau Island. There were many more exotic species, and that pavilion is the largest butterfly area I have ever seen. But it was terribly crowded and hot and I soon fled.

Thanks again, Lyndee. Several of the photos were taken by my wife, so I must give her credit.

If you Google Mainau you will find many more images on the web. It's a fantastic place.

WOW! DUnno which to call a favorite! Love the nighttime photos of the lighthouse, the waterfall staircase is gorgeous, #8 is so colorful - geez, the whole series is gorgeous! Got more?

Thanks, Dianne. I've got quite a few more, but don't want to monopolize the forum. Look at my web page if you wish.
