Be careful where you step at the butterfly museum.

Whoops!

Matt,

As always, your photos rock. Great pics from the Niagara Butterfly Conservatory, except for the unfortunate fella who ended up under foot.

I had the great joy of visiting the butterfly room at the Museum of Natural History in New York city in Nov., 2006. There are few spectacles in nature to compare with waterfalls, but butterflies definitely qualify.

Shot handheld - E5 with 12-60mm (which apparently does decent macro).
I brought my 400mm, but the bus was running so slow that day, it would have taken over an hour to fetch it fro the hotel and then head to the conservatory before it closed.

Nothing has really changed since I visited in 2007. Same layout... same species. Same displays. Same expensive admission ($13.50).
Takes about 15 minutes to walk through. 30 minutes if you are photographing. Gift shop is just as big as the conservatory. Garden outside is always nice, but in the heat of summer, there's really nothing at full bloom. My guess is that in spring, it's easily an hour or more if you want to photograph flowers.

Great photos! Would it be possible to set up a tripod in there?

Maybe in the off season. I didn't see many people with tripods even at the falls. There were just too many people. The butterfly conservatory was packed (Niagara Parks must make a mint - especially since all their attractions are so overpriced).
I have been there in the past where there were just a few people.
