Yesterday I started a new volunteer job – at Dow Gardens in Midland, Michigan. This is a wonderful place to visit if you live in Midland or are there for a visit. From now until April 21, they are hatching butterflies in their conservatory and I am one of the people who is working the exhibit! A friend of mine has worked there for the past four years and I am working there with her.
I got some lovely photographs yesterday, once my camera lens recovered from the 27 degrees F (-3 degrees C) outside to 90 degrees F (32 degrees C) with nearly 100% humidity inside! They are tropical butterflies so the conservatory is kept very warm and humid for them. It feels good when it’s so cold out but it takes a while for the camera to warm up.
