Fluttering beauty

That Alivia would love Krohn Conservatory's Butterfly Show was a pretty safe bet, but how much she would love it was a pleasant surprise.

She quickly found a winged friend who seemed content to hang out in her hand. She became attached and wanted to take the butterfly home with her. It took some convincing to get her to accept that we weren't permitted to remove any of the exhibit's stars upon our exit.

When it was time to go, she willingly shared her friend with another little girl in awe of the butterfly spectacle. She made sure, though, that we had photos of her with the butterfly for future admiration.

The show's two attendees not pictured with butterflies were content looking at the beautiful creatures, but wanted nothing to do with actually being touched by them.
