Butterfly Atrium

Our family visited the Butterfly Atrium at Hershey Gardens in PA which was so beautiful!  They had the temperature set as if we were in a tropical rain forest.  There were so many beautiful and various butterflies throughout the atrium that I have never seen before in person.  They also had moths of different types.  Some of these butterflies and moths were very large and others were small.

I think I had the hardest time seeing how many of them had damaged wings though. We were warned while walking through to be careful of where we step, as sometimes butterflies are low.  I was really cautious and sometimes warned strangers that they were about to step on a butterfly.

The boys, Rob, and I, were enraptured by the beauty around us.  It was quite lovely there. Once we made a full loop around (which was done slowly), we exited in order to enter through the gardens (post coming soon).
