Several weeks ago we went to the Texas Butterfly Festival in Mission, Tx at the National Butterfly Center. The NBC is on 100 acres, 30 acres are planted with native blooming plants which attract and sustain butterflies all year and has easy access walkways throughout. The other 70 acres have been left in its natural state. And there are more butterflies than I have ever seen anywhere. JMM took a day long photography class and the photos that I will be sharing over the next weeks are ones he took as part of the class. This was his first photography class ever and I think he did a terrific job.
