I went today to
BUTTERFLIES GO FREE!!,
an annual event at the
MONTREAL BOTANICAL GARDEN.
Something I would normally enjoy,
but as usual,
the presence of so many families on the premises
made it almost an hellish experience.
Good thing I wore my army boots
because a woman rammed her pram into my leg,
and not even a hint of an apology from her.
The world belongs to her
because she perpetuates the race...
The general rule is that it is "the survival of the fittest",
but nothing guarantees it will be the survival of the brightest!!!
Hats off to those who work there and have to suffer this on a daily basis.
There should be a quota on how many families can enter on the premises at once.
Or maybe they could schedule days where there would be no kids,
hence no parents allowed.
It's just a suggestion...
A few things went wrong with my camera,
where I made a few mistakes and had to make some adjustments,
and what I couldn't fix there,
I tried to fix with Photoshop.
I did salvaged a few,
but only a few...
I had near three hundred photos
but brought it down to fifty-nine so far.
You have eighteen here showcasing the butterflies,
the others were taken in the other green houses,
which I'll feature in the next few days.
Enjoy the view!!
you don't get pushed and shoved by a mob
while looking at these...
I was there to join a few members of a photowalk group from Montreal.
While I was glad to finally meet them,
I eventually lost track of them...
so I left once I felt I had had enough
and couldn't take anymore.
I even took a nap once I got home.
I needed to restore my serenity.
If my mother had been alive,
she would have shown those parents
on how to properly educate those kids.
One nearly crushed a butterfly with his boots,
But so many kids just didn't want to be there
but it is the parents who drag them there,
I believe there is a certain age to properly experience certain things in life.
Some will be scarred for life,
terrorized by a few insects,
no matter how beautiful they were.
But we all had to put it with it...
