Yesterday's photo was taken in the butterfly house at Botanica. Here children and adults can visit during stages from cacoon to butterfly. On the other end of this "house" is a small wooden hut where the cacoons are kept safe from harm. Once the butterflies come out, they fly around in this safe haven full of flowers. It's fun to walk through with butterflies flying all around. And, you all are right, it's hard to get a butterfly to pose! I just got lucky on that last shot.

This is the view from the other scope on the floral kaleidascope. I think it's even prettier than the last one. I chose to show the other view first, because it was easier to see the leaves & petals of the flowers (June 21st post). In this view - if a person didn't know they were looking at flowers, they'd have no idea.

It's the one from which yesterday's photo was taken. There's a step stool in front of it for children to stand on, in order to be tall enough to look through the scope. The large circular part of this (the part with the scopes on it) can be manually moved to revolve around the potted flowers, and the actual scopes can be turned (making the patterns change in motion). There are two scopes - one on each side, both offering different patterns. Tomorrow, I'll show you the view through the other scope, I think it's neater than yesterdays. Have you ever seen one of these?
I'm excited to be added to Gerald England's listings, and to the CDPB portal. I believe I've found a great group to blog with.
