Last November was a perfect time to change my routine at the Naples Botanical Garden and pay a visit the butterfly house. The morning temperatures had remained hot and there weren’t many people because the “season” hadn’t started. No one was there when I arrived so I was able to use my tripod. The rule is no tripods because of the narrow walking path through the butterfly-friendly plants – but gee wiz, no one was there to be tripped and as soon as someone walked in I folded up the tripod.
Please enjoy the fruits of my law-breaking – but please don’t fall.

Amazing how unique the details. An awe of creation.
These are so pretty! We went to a butterfly museum in Gainesville earlier this year!
I have been wanting to stop there on our trips between Michigan and Florida but it just hasn’t seemed to work.

Stunning photos! They were worth your bending the rules!
Thanks. I thought so, but I’m prone to bend rules if the rule doesn’t seem to accomplish anything. Like going through a red light at 3 in the morning when I can’t see any cars in any direction. 🙂
Great photos, One of the reasons I switched to Olympus is it has the best in-body stabilization. I lot of botanical gardens don’t allow tripods. With quick moving objects like butterfly I get more in focus shots with out using the big heavy tripod. Free at last!
