I always have a great time at the Lukas Nursery Butterfly & Bird Encounter, in Oviedo, Florida. It is a really large garden supplies center and they sell tons of plants, flowers, trees, garden sculptures and just about anything else needed for gardening. When I go, I don’t actually go gardening supplies, I go to see butterflies and insects. The Butterfly & Bird Encounter is a very hot house with plants and lot of butterflies.

First set of photos is of the Lukas Nursery and the outside of the Butterfly & Bird Encounter. The place is really huge, my pictures don’t show how big it is. The entrance to the Butterfly & Bird Encounter is through the Gift Shop. They also have chickens and horses on the property. I can spend a whole afternoon walking and taking photos.
Second set of photos is from the inside of the Butterfly & Bird Encounter. Butterflies don’t seem to like cold weather and you are more likely to see them in the spring or summer. Inside the encounter it is very humid, after spending an hour I usually end up sweating buckets. The encounter also has little birds and you can see them flittering all over the place. There is Gatorade provided and you can feed some of the butterflies is you like.
Third set of photos are of some of the butterflies, moth and caterpillars to be seen inside the encounter.
