Butterflies are great – beautiful, non-dangerous, and not too fast to escape the camera. The problem is that they don’t often live in Seattle, especially mid-winter. Coming to my rescue is the Pacific Science Center and their butterfly habitat. I was there for something else and didn’t have long, but I loved spending a few minutes here. The butterflies are huge, released twice a day, and aren’t too far away to take pictures of. I might go back with the right equipment in tow – knowing that they’re there rain or shine is just too enticing to pass up when the temperature is in the mid 30’s.
