So this is Butterfly Wonderland in Scottsdale, Arizona. I had wanted to visit this place for some time but no one would go with me….LOL. So finally I went over for a look see myself and it was pretty interesting. I spent some time inside walking around shooting video and stills trying not to accidentally step on any little butterflies. It can get very warm and humid inside so if you need water make sure you have some. Ladies this is not going to be a good hair day. I used the still function of my HD video camera to do the images. I wanted the format to match and it worked out well enough I suppose. Enjoy!
Open 7 days a week: 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
School tours are typically held in morning hours. Please plan your visit accordingly.

From Wikipedia: Butterflies are part of the class of insects in the order Lepidoptera. Adult butterflies have large, often brightly coloured wings, and conspicuous, fluttering flight. The group comprises the true butterflies (superfamily Papilionoidea), the skippers (superfamily Hesperioidea) and the moth-butterflies (superfamily Hedyloidea). Butterfly fossils date to the mid Eocene epoch, 40–50 million years ago.
Butterflies exhibit polymorphism, mimicry and aposematism. Some, like the Monarch, will migrate over long distances. Some butterflies have parasitic relationships with organisms including protozoans, flies, ants, other invertebrates, and vertebrates. Some species are pests because in their larval stages they can damage domestic crops or trees; however, some species are agents of pollination of some plants, and caterpillars of a few butterflies (e.g., harvesters) eat harmful insects. Culturally, butterflies are a popular motif in the visual and literary arts.
