Butterfly Festival

Two weeks ago I went to the Butterfly Festival at Norfolk Botanical Garden. No wonder I'm a member. I'm always going there! The Butterfly Society of Virginia was there answering any questions one might have about butterflies and moths. They were also selling host plants for attracting butterflies. People could also visit the butterfly garden and house. If you could ignore the rain showers, it was a pretty good time! I love these events because I always learn something and besides, it might be something that I can use in my artwork!
Just a few photos from that day:

There were some collections there. These are local butterflies.
The collector said that he has raised many more than he has collected.

I couldn't help myself. I had to become a member!
