Saturday we took Bella to the Butterfly House here in St. Louis. It's part of the parks and recreation department. We were lucky in that they are celebrating their 10 year anniversary so all through the month of September tickets were buy one get one free.
Bella had a great time but I think Mommy and Daddy enjoyed it more. You start out watching a short film on the Butterfly and the impact the Butterfly plays in supporting human life from pollinating our fruits and veggies along with many other benefits the Butterfly provides.
Here is a picture of my wife holding a butterfly on her finger while trying to take a picture of it.
Here is the next display we encountered. Oppps
Here are a series of butterflies we saw while walking the paths around the observatory. I think someone said there are over 200 species of Butterflies found in this enclosure.
Here are some cool ones of Butterflies feeding.
Here is a picture of Karen and Bella loving on each other while walking the paths.
Here is a picture of our little Butterfly.
I hope everyone has a great day!
