Butterfly Conservatory Key West "Snapshot Sunday"

I think I missed my calling in life. The other day on TV I was watching a program on the shooting of Sports Illustrated and I came to the realization that I should have been a photographer. I don't want to be a model because you have to starve yourself and be half naked in temperatures less than desirable, but it is the photographer who has the good deal because they get to travel to locations all over the world. The more I travel the more I want to travel. This planet we live on is truly amazing! So beautiful! Our first stop on our cruise was Key West. I have been to Key West before when one of our cruises stopped there 8 years ago. Frank and I went snorkeling. This time we wanted to see some of the tourist attractions. Our first stop was the Butterfly Conservatory, where we saw one of the best collection of live butterflies. Butterflies are truly amazing. Before we saw the butterflies we watched a short film on their life and transformation from egg, caterpillar, and finally to butterfly. The conservatory also has a nice Koi pond and collection of birds. It is definitely worth visiting if you are in Key West.

I think you ARE a photographer, you just don't get paid.
Your photos are fabulous and are of professional grade for sure.

Hmmm, I have been to KW countless times and also had no idea this was there. I will look for it, on Tuesday, my girls will love it.

Thanks for the ideas. Ours is just a quickie, KW and Cozamel with a day at sea. I really wanted the Cayman jamaica one but it coincides with a seminar I am taking, grrrr. So this will do. My girls went to bed an hour ago but are still awake....a little excited. The youngest doesn't remember the last cruise and the oldest one does, hence the excitement.
We drive down to Key West for the day sometimes so I really didn't want to cruise there but never mind it will still be tonnes of fun. Key lime pie dipped in chocolate on a stick....oh don't mind if I do.
