Sertoma Butterfly House

minrose(4Mn)December 19, 2012

I went to the Sertoma Butterfly House in Sioux Falls, South Dakota last weekend, it was so much fun. There were lots and lots of butterflies fluttering around, I took around 500 photos! I would like to share a few of them.

Beautiful! Thanks for sharing your photos. Sounds nice right now to walk through a toasty warm place full of butterflies and tropical plants.

I think the first one is a variable cracker - like me? :) - and there are a lot of longwings/Heliconians, like in all butterfly houses.

Anybody know what that gorgeous third one is?

It's a Leopard Lacewing.

It's great that there is a butterfly house in South Dakota. Here in Portland, with a metro population twice that of SD, we only get a two-week exhibit at the local zoo.

Beautiful pictures! Other than my book, I've only seen Monarchs and Swallowtails. This was really a pleasure to see.
