Butterfly Wonderland opened a couple of years ago in Scottsdale, Arizona!
Many experiences photographing butterflies protected in butterfly sanctuaries has been a highlight of trips to some nearby states. For this butterfly enthusiast, such an outing is nothing short of delightful! Now that Arizona has its own butterfly sanctuary, we recently took our five grandchildren out for an afternoon of butterfly watching and photography. Armed with cameras and snacks, we set out for a few hours of fun.
As my granddaughters watched, one butterfly slowly closed its wings into instant camouflage, suddenly resembling a dry leaf! We enjoyed our pleasant diversion wandering through Butterfly Wonderland, not very far from my own backyard. It is the perfect shady oasis for a restful afternoon getaway.
