Yeah, from the title you immediately knew this post would be about butterflies. Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden is installing its 2012 Butterflies LIVE! exhibition in the Conservatory. The exhibition doesn’t start until next week — May 25 — but here are some behind the scenes photos to whet your appetite. You have plenty of time to make it over to the Garden to see Butterflies LIVE! it runs May 25 – October 14, 2012.
