Photo Flashbacks: Butterflies in Penang 14

Last year during our family holiday to Penang we visited the Penang Butterfly Farm.

(UPDATE 2016: Penang Butterfly Farm is now known as Entopia by Penang Butterfly Farm)

From the moment we walked through the door we felt as though we had been transported to a magical place.

Butterflies in a rainbow of colours fluttering up close and personal will have that effect on you.

I could not believe how close I was able to get to these beautiful insects, and to my surprise, my simple digital camera was able to take some fantastic shots, something I would have thought was only reserved for those with the most elaborate of cameras.

Come and see what my little camera was able to capture.

We were in a beautiful tropical garden filled with lots of colourful plants and the butterflies could be seen on an array of foliage.

Remember how I said you could get up close and personal with the butterflies.  I wasn’t joking.

But when we stumbled upon the free guided tour we discovered that this was the star of the show.
