Butterflies will soon be blooming! Don't miss out! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So guys, I'M SUPER EXCITED for Frederik Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids (March 1- April 30, 2019) and Dow Gardens in Midland (March 1-April 21, 2019) to open their butterfly houses! So mark your calendars! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's such a great break from our cold blustery winter to enjoy these little fluttery beings!! I like to visit several times as the light changes and different species of butterflies have emerged!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ HUGE TIPS FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS: I always call ahead to see if there is a school group scheduled for the day of my visit...just sayin'. Also, I like to get there first thing in the morning when it's quiet and hopefully less traffic. Some places won't let you bring tripods so check ahead. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Please let me know of any other butterfly houses in MI that you love as I would like to check out some new locations this year!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #liveauthentic #beauty #nature #Michigan #puremichigan #greatlakesstate #travelingmichigan #michiganders #mittensmitten #butterflies #butterflies_lovers #butterfliesofinstagram #buterfliesandflowers #butterflieseverywhere #loving_butterflies #butterflyhouse #welivetoexplore #colorful #naturelovers #getoutdoors #adventure #instaphotographer #landscape #wanderlust #outdoors #keepitwild #fredrikmeyergardens⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #simplyadventure #lifeofadventure
