Day 2: Butterfly Conservatory

The second special exhibit at the AMNH we visited was The Butterfly Conservatory, which is a hothouse full of living butterflies.

Part of my winning swag was a little Flip Video camera. You can see our efforts below - Gene shot the film, I edited it. The focus isn't always perfect, but it did an OK job. That's me at the end with a butterfly on my shoulder. I was standing very still, so as not to spook it, but, as it turned out, it wouldn't fly away even after I shook my shoulder. One of the docents had to gently lift it off before we could leave.

More to come . . .
