If you stop walking, butterflies land on you. They fly all around you and you bump into them as you walk. There are literally hundreds swirling all around!

The tropical conservatory is the heart of the Butterfly House. Its carefully controlled environment houses nearly 2,000 tropical butterflies in free flight. As many as 80 butterfly species and 150 tropical plant species are exhibited. Few moments in nature are as magical as watching a butterfly emerge from its chrysalis. This rarely seen transformation becomes an everyday occurrence in the "Miracle of Metamorphosis." Hundreds of chrysalides from around the world are on display with butterflies emerging before your very eyes.

I know that there is a Botanical garden in Glencoe, laura. But I don't think that they have a Butterfly house!

Must have been quite an experience! this one is beautiful... thanks laura

Thanks, Pat, tex, Patti and Lyndee.

No problem, tex, you can just look at the photos.

Lyndee, there are double doors with a space in between, both going in and coming out. You go through the first set of doors, which are closed behind you. Then you go through the second set, into the conservatory. On the way out, it's the same thing. You go through the first set of doors and the attendants make sure you haven't picked up any hitch hikers. When it's all clear, you go through the second door.

lyndee

How do you keep them from leaving with you when you leave?

Well that lets me out! I could never stand butterflies landing on me, it creeps me out. I do like them on plants, though. This one is very pretty. Thanks.
