Get eye to eye with a butterfly in the exhibit Butterflies & Blooms coming to the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park this spring and summer. The popular exhibit returns to San Francisco’s beloved greenhouse, transforming its Special Exhibits gallery into a a beautiful and intimate cottage garden aflutter with hundreds of butterflies on the wing. Walk amongst a wide variety of brightly colored blossoms, watching (and sometimes ducking!) as butterflies like magnificent monarchs, swallowtails, painted ladies and more fly from flower to flower drinking nectar and getting covered in pollen. It’s a fascinating demonstration of plant pollination in action. The Butterfly Bungalow in the middle of the gallery also allows you to observe the pupae in their chrysalis stage. You never know, you may be lucky enough to catch the moment when one of these winged beauties emerges.

Visitors receive a free butterfly identification booklet, including tips on growing your own delightful butterfly garden plus insight into these wondrous, age-old symbiotic garden relationships.

The exhibit is on view May 8-October 20, 2013. The Conservatory is open Tuesdays through Sundays from 10 AM - 4 PM. Visit www.conservatoryofflowers.org.
