One Patient's Positive Perspectives

Albuquerque Bio Park
Butterfly Sanctuary

During a recent trip to Albuquerque, a trip to the Aquarium and Bio Park included spending time in the butterfly sanctuary on the grounds.

To prevent too much sun exposure that might flare my lupus, precautions such as a wide-brimmed hat, long sleeve sweater and pants were donned at the outset.  Getting through the park without over-exposure was very doable, even in the middle of the day, as we found abundant shade from the well established tree cover in the park.  Also, there was plenty of dappled shade throughout the butterfly sanctuary.

The outing was a thoroughly wonderful afternoon, and provided a first-hand opportunity for catching some butterflies to share with you.

All the photos below were recently added to the full gallery on the Butterfly Collecting Adventures page, with the newest “specimens” shown below for your enjoyment.

Some of the photos are mine, some are my daughter-in-law’s.  If you look closely, you might even find a couple of pictures of my grandchildren enjoying the day and in “close encounter” with a butterfly.

  1. Great photos and cute grand-kids. It looks like they had a good time. We took our daughter once to an indoor butterfly house. She was mid teens or older and she couldn’t handle all the butterflies much to my surprise.

  2. Fabulous pictures, sounds like a great place to visit!
