When I last visited the Garden I got a sneak preview of Butterflies LIVE!   Now the exhibit is now open. It was amazing to see so many species from around the world in one place, I can’t wait to go back and get some more photos. Butterflies LIVE! is an ongoing event at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, so the butterflies will be at the garden from now until October 14.
