    Popp Butterfly Conservatory cancel - Now heading to Magic Wings...see thread

    I know it's last minute... but Ross and I are going to try out a new butterfly place tomorrow (Sunday). Anyone up for some macro?!!

    It's called Popp Butterfly Conservatory and it's located in Oneonta, NY (about 1.5 hours east of Albany via I-88). If anyone from the Albany area wants to go, we have room for 2 more people!

    We will be heading out early in the morning about 7am and plan to arrive around 9am when they first open.

    Here's a link to their site http://www.poppbutterflyconservatory.com/

    J. L. Popp, Jr, Butterfly Conservatory
    5802 State Hwy 7
    Oneonta, NY 13820
    Phone: (607) 435-1147


    It looks like they have tons of photos ops there... not just butterflies but other insects, birds and reptiles too

    On a serious note... if you ARE interested please let us know... we shoot conservatories quite a lot... they are incredible to be at... let alone shoot at... we would love to "drag" a few more members into shooting and you do NOT need macro specific gear to get REALLY GOOD shots...

    If I were a little closer I'd love to go, sounds like a fun place to be. Ross I really think you are going to have your hands full just trying to contain Trish's excitment, good luck take any photos.
    The name is Winston, but please call me Sandy, and never late for dinner.
