Day 10 - a snap from the Seaforde Tropical Butterf Day 10 - a snap from the Seaforde Tropical Butterfly House. Definitely an enjoyable day out for all ages! Walled garden with some eye catching flowers, resident peacock strutting its stuff, and the main feature being the butterfly house itself. Butterflies, turtles, exotic birds, and even a little insect display towards the exit - what more could you want? 🦋🐢🐦🐜 #photography #canonphotography #turtle #seafordegardens #seafordebutterflyhouse #seaforde #wildlife
