Butterfly Wonderland!

I had the loveliest of days today, as I spent it having lunch with my bff Sandie and then visiting Butterfly Wonderland,  a large butterfly museum here in Scottsdale.

We started our visit watching a 3-D movie about the migration of the Monarch Butterfly. Now, I had never seen a 3-D movie before, (I know... can you believe it?) so this was absolutely magical to me!!! Seeing all those butterflies flying off the screen was amazing!! (I know... I'm easily amused. )


 
After the movie we went into the Butterfly Conservatory where hundreds of butterflies were flying around.

 These blue ones were the most spectacular, but very hard to get a good photo of because every time they landed, they folded up their wings so you couldn't see the spectacular color. I use this butterfly in my blog designs all the time, so it was really cool to see it "live".



 
It was cool cause, the butterflies had no problem landing all over us!!
 
This is a moth and not a butterfly... Each one of his wings were as big as my hand!!!
Yes, it was a lovely day!!!

Hugs,

I love going into butterfly conservatories, and once had a blue morph land on my arm. I'll confess I've not seen a 3D movie yet myself but look forward to the experience.
A nice photo of you and your friend Karen with the butterfly wings behind.

Karen, this looks like a very unique place, I do want to go one day. I've seen lots of butterflies in my yard, all spring and summer. I consider them good luck. Oh, that moth, I've had them that big on my deck. They are huge!!

Have a great weekend and it was so perfect meeting up with you yesterday. I had the best time. This has been a great year for me for meeting blog friends. xo R
