One of the sure signs every spring in Montreal that summer is just around the corner is the Butterflies Go Free exhibit at the Montreal Insectarium. These symbols of rebirth are not only beautiful to look at they are a sign that warmer times are coming.
Upon paying your entrance fee you not only get to see the butterflies for your money you are also granted access to the flower greenhouses as well. Once you enter the greenhouse that contains the butterflies it is like you are stepping into another world. Right upon entering there are many flying around your head and you feel as if you are in a kinder, gentler world. After a few minutes walking amongst the butterflies you are completely in wonder about the different sizes and shapes and that every colour of the rainbow is represented amongst them.
