The exhibit was crowded with families and field trips, so getting photos was a challenge, especially since the butterflies don't pose on demand! You have to be patient. At first, it was a real problem. My photos looked hazy and I didn't know why. The light was harsh, but my photos looked the opposite of harsh. Then I realized, because of the cold outside and the warmth in the exhibit, my camera lens was totally fogged up! I cleaned it on my sweater, probably not a good idea, but I guess it worked. It took about 10 minutes or so before the camera warmed enough to stop fogging.
