If you are ever traveling near Toledo, Ohio take the
time to check out this wonderful butterfly
conservatory.  You will find yourself absolutely
surrounded by the most beautiful tropical species of
butterflies inside a tranquil glasshouse full of lush
plants, lovely flowers and several relaxing water
features.  We could barely pull ourselves away from
this serene indoor garden.  And for all of you
photographers out there, the butterflies are easy to
reach and shoot, as a matter of fact, they keep landing
all over you!  Fruit trays and sugar-water feeders
supplement the nectar-producing flowers so everyone
can closely observe the feeding habits of these
magical creatures.  The children are mesmerized by
the sheer number of butterflies that seem to seek you
out to land on a hand, sleeve or hat.  It makes you feel
honored somehow....like they think you are special and
trustworthy.  It's just cool.
