Colorful Colorado and beyond…

Butterfly Pavilion | Westminster, CO

The Butterfly Pavilion, located in Westminster, Colorado, is a a place a nature-loving photographer can hone her skills while taking in the tropical beauty within. Since butterflies are not known to cooperate with photographers and hold still, getting the perfect shot can be a challenge…but a rewarding one!

The Butterfly Pavilion, just minutes from Denver, is open year around 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Adults cost $8.50 and kids are $5.50.

Visitors can explore a tropical rainforest’s winding paths, hold a friendly tarantula in the palm of their hand, and discover habitats around the world and in their very own backyards. Butterfly Pavilion Blog.

Fragrant and colorful flora blooms year-round in the climate controlled habitat. Did you know that more than half of the world’s species live in a tropical rainforest environment? To see what’s blooming now, check it out here.

Not only does the Butterfly Pavilion offer an array of activities for kids, such as birthday parties, but there are adult and photographer friendly events/classes. Tripod Photography Sessions are offered during the hour before the Pavilion is open to the public and includes a day long pass. The cost is only $8.50 (for members or $15/non-members) and are limited to 20 participants. Another class offered to photographers is Macro Photography for intro and intermediate.

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of
    text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
