World of Winged Jewels - Butterfly Park !!!

Posted by redthil On 8/15/2010 12:54:00 AM

Yet another gr8 day in my life, just got over... but this day, in addition to the world wide web, spent valuable time at the world of winged jewels... Butterfly Park @ Bannerghatta National Park, Bangalore. Though November is the peak season for the butterfly, we could find few varieties of them.

And those are more than enough, to take you from this world to the wonderland. Infact, Butterfly is seen as the personification of a person's soul. (One Japanese superstition says that if a butterfly enters your guestroom and perches behind the bamboo screen, the person whom you most love is coming to see you.

And it really takes your breath away, when it just passes very near to your eyes, flapping its wings, very very beautiful ones. its really difficult to refrain from trying to touch those, that too, when it calmly sits in an leaf/flower. so, instead of touching it, this time tried to capture few of those, not with my hands, with my camera. so, here are few of those...

It was very very very calm morning, with just the buzzing sound of bees hitting ur ear drums...

This Butterfly Park is at Bannerghatta National Park, inaugurated on Nov,2006, spread across 7.5 acres, open from 10am-5pm (tuesday holday)

Has a polycarbonate roof and is a 10,000 sq ft. circular enclosure, inside which the living environment has been carefully designed to support over 20 species of butterflies, with humid climate, plants, shrubs and flowers.

Also has a museum that exhibits different species of butterflies and their life history and a media room showing video on butterflies

Its so pleasing to see a butterfly sitting in an flower, just inches from ur eyes. And i dont have to tell how beautiful those wings are....

It just flies around you...

Witnessed one of beautiful movie... Hero, Heroine and the Dark Villian!!! (you can check the series of pics in the album to understand it)

The butterfly, with its legs, tastes the leaves in which its going to lay her eggs, caz its going to be those leaves which the larva/caterpillar feed-on after its birth..

Beautiful flowers in the Butterfly Park!!!

Here is the complete album...

will end this post with thanks to my friend priya, with whom i went there..

Hows this post?
