Show and Tell: My Favorite Park

This is a guided tour of my favorite park, courtesy of Mel's Show n Tell. It is located perhaps an hour away, but I still try to go a few times each summer. It is also where I often take out of town guests.

Here are some of its features.

Inside the conservatory...





Inside the butterfly exhibit...




I love this guy's face. Click to enlarge.

This one looked like a bird flying around. Look at the size of its body!
These are a beautiful Wedgewood blue when open, but they're almost impossible to photograph open.



This was one ugly flower who took a beautiful picture.

It's always fun to find the mating ones!
I think this is a rather minimalist composition.

Outside the butterfly exhibit...





I hope you enjoyed the tour of one of my favorite places. You can't imagine the folders of pictures I, um, weeded out!

Lord, what could ever be better than to climb on top of a woman you love or even just a very hot woman of the moment in the butterfly exhibit!!! Whoever gets to be on top gets the benefit of all the butterfly flutters on his or her naked skin! Sex or Erotica, who cares about the names?

Those are all very nice. Use some of them as a basis for which to paint from. Very colorful and very lively. The butterflies, though pretty, always make me itch. Bugs.
