The Photography Network is excited about Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens (Rockford, IL) 3rd Annual Butterfly Exhibit.
The Conservatory screens off a section of their greenhouse from March 22nd - May 11th and visitors are welcomed to observe and photograph the butterflies within the enclosure. The Conservatory also has a viewing area for the chrysalises and the emerging butterflies. In addition to the butterflies, the greenhouse is filled with many tropical (and photogenic) plants. You can learn more about Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens here: http://atwoodpark.org/index.php/facilities/recreation/conservatory and you can see Joshua Smith's butterfly images from last year's exhibit here: http://www.fourpointedstar.com/gallery/tag/week-16-2013/
We plan to meet when the Conservatory opens at 10am in their lobby area for introductions and plan to stay at the Conservatory until our camera cards are full or hunger overtakes us.
