Bali for Bairns- The Butterfly Park

 

Visual travel blogging here, a few photos to tell the story of our visit to Bali’s Butterfly Park.

This is the first in a wee series of photos about the things we enjoyed over there.

PS  ‘Bairns’ is Scots slang for children, as in ‘I’m so hungry I could eat a scabby-heided bairn.’

I’m linking to Wordless Wednesday over at My Little Drummer Boys, pop on over to enjoy some photos from lovely bloggers.

      Thanks… and there are lots of comments coming in about the bravery of the kids, but actually it took a while for them to be brave enough. We watched other people for quite a while, and I had some walking on my hand before the twins had the courage to try, then they enjoyed having them so close up!

    Those butterflies are huge! My little girl loved the butterfly enclosure at the Sydney Wildlife World but I think she might be just a bit scared of these ones. I’d love the experience though.

    Woo Hoo! That’s what I love to see – kids getting close to creatures!

    Those spiny-leaf stick insects are awesome! So, is the moth. How spectacular!

    OhMiGosh those butterflies are massive! And amazing! I would have loved an experience like that as a child! I’m sure your kids won’t forget it anytime soon! Did you have any butterflies land on you? What did it feel like?

    Wow, those butterflies are big. We don’t have anything near that big where I live. We started a small butterfly garden after visiting a butterfly exhibit a couple years ago. My daughter enjoys watching the caterpillars and the butterflies.

      Hello Eric, nice to hear from you. Is it hard to set up a butterfly garden, do you plant specific butterfly-attracting plants?? cheers
