Key West Butterflies

I spent part of yesterday at the Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory right across Duval Street from our hotel. Twelve bucks to get in. If you're not staying just a few yards away, bring an extra shirt. They keep it warm and humid in there. When I first went in, my lens fogged up and I couldn't shoot for the first 5-10 minutes.

The title of the post is a misnomer. Only one of these butterflies is native to Florida. The rest are exotics from as far away as Australia.
