The Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory

Earlier this week, my wife and I visited Niagara Falls. In addition to most of the usual activities, Maid of the Mist and Journey Behind the Falls, we visited the Butterfly Conservatory that is located about 10 minutes north of the falls.

The Conservatory is located in the Botanical Gardens, which has beautiful grounds to explore before and after seeing the butterflies. With over 2,000 individual butterflies, it has more butterflies than I have ever seen in one place! We had a great time trying to find and photograph as many species as possible and at some point, I will try to figure out what all of them were!

Here are a few of my favorite photos from my time at the Conservatory:

The Conservatory
A Butterfly on Steph's Hat
Quite possibly the most beautiful butterfly at the Conservatory

A Master of Camouflage 

There were tons of these!

A very striking butterfly that we only saw a couple of times during our visit.
And it wouldn't be right to go to Niagara Falls and not include at least one picture of the falls!
