Blooming Butterflies

Every year for the last few years Como Zoo in St. Paul, MN, has had an exhibit, “Blooming Butterflies”.  The exhibit begins in June and lasts until Labor Day.  During that time over 6,000 butterflies from around the world are released, with up to 400 butterflies released each week.  Visiting the exhibit is intoxicating since I don’t think I’ve ever gotten so many keepers in such a short amount of time, about a half hour.
