One of my favorite places to photograph in Massachusetts has to be The Butterfly Place in Westford. Its a fantastic place to spend an afternoon taking photos of butterflies. They have a wide variety of butterflies, moths and a very informative staff. They keep the temperature around 80 degrees so I always make sure to dress in layers just in case.
They also have some small finches and quail. But, I always go to check out the butterflies.
In fact I visited so often in the past that I photographed a wedding there as well as the wedding for the daughter of one of their employees. So, I always think very fondly of The Butterfly Place.
This is at the entrance to the main butterfly room.
I had a really fun time and I will definitely go back later this year. I used my 60mm macro lens all day and it really worked out well. Its always good to go out and shoot different things. The Butterfly Place comes highly recommended. Check it out if you're in Central MA.
