Stress Down at Okinawa's Ryugujo Butterfly Garden

There are probably lots of other butterfly houses, around the world, you can visit.

This Ryugujo Butterfly Garden just happened to be on my list of things to do on a rainy day.

 For sure, the butterflies wouldn't be willing to pose, the way I wanted them to.

The rascals can be a real challenge and that can stress a cameraman out.

Getting good close-up shots is almost impossible.

Sometimes, I zoom in too close.

Compose a shot and be quick or somebody will move and ruin the picture for you.

 These critters are pretty skittish when someone points a long lens at them.

There's no telling what they'll do.

Here's a photo of one that decided to get behind Doc Graff's lens.

Knowing what you are about to experience, in advance, is one way to keep the stress down.

What I recommend is a good belly-splitting laugh, before even going into the place.

 Can you think of any better way to get your stress levels down ?

Oh my gosh, Mike! I was thinking about how beautiful all of the butterflies were and then I got to the last pic! I'm not saying that you're not pretty, but.... Very funny!
