There was plenty to see and experience, and I am certain some of the children who attended will never forget the experience. As usual click each photo for a better view.
Followed by the Jacksonville Herpetology Society. The snakes were fun to watch and I am announcing that I actually touched one!
JLBO, whatever you do... do not watch this video! And YES, the snake is under his shirt.
There was even music from a harp player who was just setting up as I arrived.
A trainer showed everyone how it was done and then the race was on...
There were those who were very direct,
those who used the gentle approach,
and those who were just happy to get a nibble from the first butterfly that came along. But pretty much if you were patient everyone got a chance to feed a butterfly.
It was a wonderful experience to watch and I felt pretty good as the Butterfly Lady waved goodbye.
