    Spent Thursday afternoon at the zoo. No crowds had the place to ourselves. Thanks Shelly for making a second trip. Is there an online album for this meet.

    I see from the comments this has been ongoing for 2 years, perhaps someone can formalize a date and make it an official meet-up. I would but I am out of town for the next 10 days.

      I love the zoo... and the butterflies are so interesting to try to photograph. I had a great time Paul.

    I was at the Zoo on Sunday and the butterflies are here and have started to fly.

    It looks like we are going to have a little warmer temps and sunnier skys next week to make it a full day at the zoo.

    I plan to go on Wed April 2nd. Anyone want to meet up with me?

      Hi Erin.... and anyone else... lol. I will head down to the Zoo around 10 am... and should be there for most of the day (am going to take a lunch and just sit in the flowers and butterflies). So whenever you get there is fantastic... :-) I will have my phone on and messages on here get to me right away so just let me know when you show up... :-)

    I am in. Will test my 200mm on it probably. Good idea as there aren't many butterflies around :-)

    They have a butterfly exhibit every year at the Botanical Gardens in Montreal, and it's an amazing photo op! Here are some pics from my last visit:

    Regarding suggestion on the date: Saturdays, Sundays or holidays?

  • Shelly H.

    I was just at the zoo the other day. They do not have the butterflies at the moment and are waiting for spring when they morph(?) again. Not sure of the timing, sorry.

    Sundays work better, as do mid-week days and evenings, especially with the winter lights on.

    I'm interested to attend if there's a set date specially on weekends.

    This meet up has been around for quite some time - needing a date. Is it actually in the works or what?

    I'd like to do this too, weekends work best and Frdays too. It would be fun to share skills and photos.

    July 30, 2012

  • Keith M

    Depending on the date and time I would love to come and do this again.

    July 30, 2012

  • CJ J.

    I'm in !!! Just as long as I have at least a few days' notice so I can plan my schedule. I've shot the butterflies once, but it was hurried as we were trying to get in the whole zoo. I would love to be able to spend more time in there. They are such a unique and beautiful subject.

    July 30, 2012

  • Jessica D.

    I'm game as soon as a date is established

    July 18, 2012

  • Cathy B.

    Went there to shoot once - well worth the trip. Got some wonderful images. Would be interested in doing it again if the timing works out. I will keep an eye out and sign up if able.
