Every summer I love visiting the butterfly pavillion. Some years when we’ve waited until the end, it felt like a lot of the butterflies had died off, but this year there were pockets of tons of them flying around you. One or two did land on me but I wasn’t able to snap a picture. Breaks my heart though that all Daisy wants is for one to land on her and that rarely happens. One touched her head but immediately flew off. I think it was enough to make her happy though.

This outing did hammer home how much I dislike my camera. It refuses to focus on the right thing and I don’t have the control I had in my old camera. I lost it a year ago and still mourn. Definitely time to start looking for something else.

After the butterflies, we went inside the Natural History Museum to see their new dinosaur exhibit. We had to have timed tickets because of the crowds. Cannot say we expected that. It was a very well done exhibit and can’t wait to explore it again.

    Oh how we love the butterfly pavilion. We used to go to the one near Denver every year. There was one at the Seattle zoo but it didn’t have the same kind of feel as that one did. You are right in that a visit there really does test your camera. I usually leave frustrated I can’t get great shots!
