    Butterfly.

    As Anne and Sue were visiting the Butchart gardens, they decided to make a day of it and check out the Victoria Butterfly Gardens as well. The Butterfly Gardens house hundreds of varieties of butterflies in a beautifully appointed hot house that is loaded with an impressive collection of tropical plants and trees for the butterflies to enjoy.

    The Butterfly Gardens have also taken the time to have quite a few a few birds in the garden, including pink flamingos, along with a coy-filled water pond.

    We visited this place on our way to the Butchart Gardens. Here you'll find a lots of butterflies flying free all over the place as well as flowering plants, waterfalls and trees that makes you feel like being in a tropical forest as the temperature is really warm in there. This place not just hosts butterflies but also birds, ducks, flamingos and (my personal favorite) koi fish. A nice stop for you to learn more about butterflies and its metamorphosis.

    One of many butterflies to see...up close!

    A magical place were you can stroll through a stunning tropic gardens while witnessing the entire life cycle of one of nature's most amazing insects...the butterfly.
    With over 35 imported species of butterflies, you can see up to 2,000 flying freely amidst hundreds of tropical plants, including an exquisite orchid exhibit.
    Cascading water falls into a stream that meanders throughout the garden and is home to many fish and tropical ducks. Rare South African Turocos and other birds will entertain you with their antics.
    It is a captivating experience for the whole family and truly a photographer's paradise!

    Tropical Jungle full of Exotic Butterflies & Birds

    This is a unique experience. You enter a rather plain building, go through the lobby and into a misty, tropical jungle with many species of beautiful butterflies flying freely. It's a huge room with high ceilings, lots of exotic trees, a brook and pond, cockatoos & butterflies flitting passed your shoulders, sitting on leaves, or hatching in the glassed in hatchery. It's really worth seeing and experiencing.

    I found some butterfly photos online(too large to put on this page) to give you a feel for what we were delighted by.

    This was included in our tour to Butchart Gardens. But it was much more than an add-on. The butterflies were beautiful, the informational signs educational. And it is right on the way to Butchart.
