Butterfly Garden - Palawan

After touring the Crocodile Farm, we went to the Butterfly Garden and it was a short but still enjoyable tour.

Before the tour started, a simple talk was conducted but the place was crowded with tourists that I decided to just take some pics. Anyway, the tour guide was discussing about a butterfly's life cycle and I already knew about them as this was discussed in my elementary and high school science lessons.

I love butterflies. For as long as I can remember, I have always had a fascination with them. It was thus a wonder to be very near them, to closely watch them flit from one flower to another in all their colorful glory.

I even saw pink and blue butterflies but they were the ones who were very elusive. The black and white butterflies were the easiest to photograph as they did not seem to mind being very near humans. The others though would fly at the slightest human movement.

The farm had limited flora though. But I got fascinated with some flowers so I snapped their pics.

I also got fascinated with their "home" when they were about to populate. It's the pic below. Interesting.

All in all, it was a pretty laid back but still fun tour.
