Montreal Biodome and Botanical Gardens – Part 2

Morpho helenor

Butterflies Go Free at the Botanical Gardens in Montreal.

We entered  in the middle of a series of interconnecting green houses full of beautiful plants.  A greenhouse at one end housed the moths and at the opposite end a greenhouse full of butterflies.  As it was day, the moths were not very active and it was easy to take their picture.  The butterflies, on the other hand, were flying all over.  They would briefly alight on a bush, flower, or even a person, before flying off .
