Butterflies Are (Not) Free in Key West

I don't really have a Bucket List, but I have always wanted to go to a Butterfly Conservatory.
I discovered one at the southern end of Duval Street in Key West. We got in for $11 each with some discount passes I picked up at our hotel.

The conservatory has hundreds of butterflies of 50 to 60 different species. Various species will be active, depending on which time of the day you visit. I don't have labels for the butterfly photos. I didn't take time to find out what they were named. Some of the photos are a little blurry because their wings are constantly in motion.

Enjoy!
