Faceoff of the Butterflies

Faceoff of the Butterflies

What is the last thing you learned?

A few days ago I got to spend some time at one of my favorite places in Dallas, the Butterfly House at the Texas Discovery Gardens. While watching butterflies battle over the same source of food, I realized three things. First, a camera lens fogs up quickly when entering a warm and enclosed conservatory even if the camera was kept in a bag while walking in from the cooler outdoors. Second, butterflies wait for no one so you have to be ready to click fast. Third, as swiftly as the butterflies move, manual focus works much better than relying on the camera’s auto focus.

I wonder what there is to learn today. We will see!

  4. Butterfly houses are such fun to visit. We have one nearby (surprise!) that I visited recently and it was magical to see all those wings in winter.

    1. How great to have a butterfly house close by! I’d love to see them all through winter. The best one close to us is in Grand Rapids, MI and they only have butterflies from March through April. Planning on getting there very soon too. 😊

  5. Super shot! πŸ™Œ

    1. Thanks! I was excited about it. My butterfly shots are not always the greatest. They flutter about so fast. 😁
