"Olbrich Botanical Garden Butterflies and More...."

The conservatory at Olbrich Gardens has so many things to look at besides the main event, the "butterfly show". One of the things I like best about it, is that it has so many levels that one can walk along and see the many trees/plants from various heights.

It's a true "Jungle" in there! It's Wonderful! Here is Don seen through one of the arbors, on a bridge that overlooks the waterfall..........

A newly hatched butterfly. I'm not sure that "hatched" is the correct term, but I hope you'll forgive me if it isn't and know what I mean....

A double hibiscus. A shame that they only bloom for one day.......

We were able to get a couple of photos of the resident Koi, too.

And one of the resident Grouse made an appearance.

Another butterfly hanging on the tip of a HUGE, white, bell shaped flower.

Don caught this one just as we were on our way out.

We enjoyed our visit very much.
