Visiting Insel Mainau

Two weeks ago, we went on a spur-of-the-moment road trip to Bodensee or Lake Constance. Daddy had two days off work and he was in the mood for a drive. Since we haven't been to Bodensee yet, Mom & Dad decided that we visit and stay for the night. It was only about 2 hours and 30 minutes drive from where we live so that at around 4pm, we arrived in Insel Mainau, our first stop.

Me... just after taking a good look at the turtles.

Insel Mainau is popularly known as The Flower Island. It is open year-round and has different seasonal flowers blooming all year round. It is just a tiny island but has a lot to offer. There's a butterfly house, a palm house with orchids in it, a playground for the children, a chapel, a castle, the Italian steps, docks and shops and restaurants too.

I enjoyed the butterfly house a lot. Mommy got the chance to photograph some of the butterflies.

Here they are:

Can you find the two butterflies mating?

If you know the name of the butterfly, please let me know by leaving a comment. Mommy forgot to take note of the names. Besides, they are all written in their scientific names and German names so that they are very difficult to remember.

Thanks and I hope you enjoyed the butterflies. More of Insel Mainau in my upcoming posts!

We have a butterfly here also. What a magical place to visit. I think what you see is a Monarch Butterfly. My wife is not around. She would know.
