I ventured back to The Conservatory at Dow Gardens on a cold and sunny winter day. The warm temperatures and humid air inside the building that is necessary to sustain all of the plant life was not very conducive to my camera equipment and lenses. It was at least a 45 minute to one hour wait while my equipment got climatized and my lenses became fog-free.

The Garden's "Butterflies in Bloom" event takes place every year in early March as butterflies are brought to life and free to fly within the climate controlled area. It's a great learning experience for young and old as you get to observe them as they land on you shoulder or hold them gently in your hand. This is such a beautiful and tranquil park and is open year round.

This is the front portion of the Conservatory... to view the back portion, click here: gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=17743
How many birds can you count in the cage?
