A trip to Butterfly World

I recently went with a South Florida Photographers meetup group to Butterfly World. I have been there several times before and was still amazed at all the facility has to provide. The one thing that always bugged me about Butterfly World is the people. You can imagine that this would seem a great place to bring kids, but with kids comes strollers. Photographers are not allowed to bring in tripods or monopods (a one legged tripod for supporting your camera), but stroller cause the same “blockage” as a monopod would.

While I stand there waiting for a butterfly to open, and spread its wings, I get slammed in the ankle by a stroller. So now I have to move, reposition my shot and hope the butterfly does not fly away.

It really is the only negative thing about the attraction and I wish they offered some kind of early entrance for people willing to pay a little extra to be “alone”.

Below are some photos I took during my visit.
