Day 1 – Carleton University’s Annual Butterfly Show, October 1-10, 2011

Day 1 – Carleton University’s Annual Butterfly Show, October 1-10, 2011

Today’s post provides a visual glimpse at some of the things that I saw and photographed on the first day of Carleton University’s 12th Annual Butterfly Show. For more details with respect to location, times, etc. please see my previous post.

First off, the show continues to as popular or even more popular than in previous years. I arrived shortly after lunch, and the line-up took about 45 minutes to get into the greenhouse area. It was cool and overcast outside but it didn’t rain (a good outcome).

Some of the children waited patiently in line with their parents or grandparents, but many, if not most, found other things to do such as sitting in the grass, rolling down the hill, searching for chestnuts or climbing the nearby chestnut tree. A chipmunk scampering in and out of the bushes added a bit more entertainment for the children.


Once we got close to the entrance, we could look into the greenhouse and see many people, young and old, holding up pieces of orange and trying to photograph the many butterflies that were fluttering around inside.

Ron has long had an interest in photography and traveling and, in recent years, has had more time to devote to both activities. Long a Pentax user, Ron switched to Nikon gear when he went digital. The advent of the digital SLR camera, and the ease of the internet blogging process, has provided a venue for sharing his photography and travel experience at the local, national and international level.
