Detroit Zoo Butterfly House

I visited the Detroit Zoo this past week, I actually visit quite often with my four year old. This trip we spent a lot of time in the butterfly house. It was less crowded then during the summer with the older kids back in school.

It is always amazing to me the number of free flying butterflies, and with the early morning sun they were quite active and easy to see. My daughter is always trying to catch them, luckily they were onto her and kept on the move.

I wish I could remember the names of all of them as I did get some great pictures, but for now I will just share the pics. I am really going to try and visit in the winter months to see the green gardens and the joyful butterflies.

The orange ones are a Tiger, and the other is a Mexican Blue Wave. Note this is from the older butterfly cards before the big ones used today. Found one in a resale shop (old one)
