Butterflies Aplenty!

We visited the Butterfly Palace in Branson, MO, where I was delighted to be able to see so many beautiful butterflies up close!

Owl Butterfly

I don't know the name of this one - anyone else know?

Paper Kite

Even more Paper Kites!

Two more "I don't knows"...wish I had managed to keep better notes!


I think the Paper Kites thought I was something yummy to eat!

They really liked me!

The very rare "Dan Butterfly"!





Hope you enjoyed the visit!  Linking to Nature Footstep Wings (a new meme for me - thanks for the invitation!) and This or That Thursday.

That Butterfly house is the sister site of the one we have here in St. Louis county. I have not been to the one in Branson but love taking my out-of-town guest to the one here. They always seem to like it as well.

I recognized the butterfly bench behind your husband in the last picture. They have the same one here.
