My wife and I this weekend went to the Butterfly Pavilion in Westminster, Colorado.  Our first time there and we enjoyed the amazing amount of butterflies and the garden they are housed in, made for an enjoyable hour of photography and exploration.

Below are the best of the photos I took.

Thanks for looking!
