My favorite Lukas Nursery also has an enclosed butterfly garden with tons of free-flight butterflies. They raise the caterpillars and release them into the garden. Butterflies will land on you (which isn’t too freaky, if you’re expecting it!). They don’t mind a bit if you get close to photograph them. So I go over there sometimes to take pictures.
