Have you ever visited a butterfly conservatory?
Recently, I went with a group of friends to “Magic Wings,” a butterfly conservatory in Western Massachusetts. This was a very enjoyable and tranquil visit.
Inspired by the butterfly conservatory visit, I folded these four origami models of Honda, LaFosse, P. Jackson and Yoshizawa.
Imagine hundreds of butterflies, different sizes and with a variety of colors and patterned wings, fluttering around a warm, glass conservatory.
They would settle briefly on colorful tropical plants and flowers or on the numerous butterfly feeders before flying to the next nectar source.
As you stroll along the winding paths in the conservatory, butterflies might even land on you. Rest on a bench in the gazebo. Listen to the softly playing music in the background.
Pay attention to the tiny Chinese quails scuttling along the paths or darting in and out of the foliage. Gaze at the group of tortoises crawling around their pen and remind yourself to s-l-o-o-o-o-o-w down.
