There's More Than Just Fun at Sun 'n' Fun

Sarasota, FL       High:      83    Low:   66

There's a butterfly garden at Sun 'n' Fun!  It's very small but very beautiful....Sparky experimented with her iPhone 4S camera phone today...
The focus kept going in and out so it was hard to get close ups of the blossoms...But Sparky found out if you tap your finger on the object you are trying to get focused, the camera will refocus on where you pointed on the screen...
Lots of beautiful pink and red flowers, plenty to tempt butterflies and bees and hummingbirds, you would think. Sparky just saw lots of busy bees today....Sparky doesn't know her Florida flowers very well, but think these are fuchsia?

There are a couple of little statues.....
There are benches to sit on, and a little high top patio table set with umbrella for your pleasure....
Sparky wasn't the only one there....Tons of these little guys running around, and puffing up their throats menacingly to let her know she was encroaching on their space!
But no butterflies anywhere to be seen....  :-/  Sparky was surprised that the camera managed to capture the raindrops on the petals with a decent amount of detail....
A lovely way to spend part of the day today......
Come and sit sometime in the butterfly garden...It smells wonderful, too!
Until tomorrow......


  1. Isn't it amazing how great our phones are now? Nice pictures!

  2. Beautiful scenery right there with bright colors. That I phone sure does come in handy too.

  3. Those pink flowers in your second picture sure have an unusual bloom.

  4. Now that's a great way to spend an afternoon. . .and you captured it perfectly!

  5. I am amazed at the quality of your phone pictures. I wonder if my droid would do as well. It looks like a lovely place and very peaceful.
