Most magical of creatures. It’s hard to believe butterflies are even related to earthbound insects and harder to believe they start life as a tiny worm-like caterpillar. Their metamorphosis is one of nature’s miracles. The Butterfly Biosphere at Thanksgiving Point is made up of roughly 40,000 square feet—about 10,000 of that space is the butterfly conservatory where you will find yourself amidst hundreds, some days thousands of bright-wings. Butterflies fluttering around and above you, even landing on you—your chance to befriend a butterfly.
