Default Re: Photolog : A Sunday morning with Butterflies

Hello SDP,

Thank you (once again) for the beautiful pictures. My wife & daughter just saw these pictures & the next question was when are we going there?

Good to know that the Butterfly season is till second week of May & I will soon play to visit this place once my daughter's exams are done.
By the way how was the breakfast arrangement there?

Just a quick search on Google maps revealed that this wonderful place is just 24 kms from my home (Malad west). Really surprising to know that we do not know of a great place like this one so close to our homes.

Thanks,

Please do visit the place. The breakfast was poha and tea in one tiny disposable cup. Avoidable, if you can.

Mumbai (and Thane) does not cease to surprise me. After staying here for close to 40 years, there are still gems like these hidden right under our nose.

Thanks getsurya!

For short trips, especially to places where I am going for the first time, I typically do a Google-maps research before taking out the XUV.

The satellite images showed a narrow road through the village, with no clear parking space. So took the Alto instead of the XUV. Later realized that the butterfly garden does have a sizable parking space INSIDE the garden, big enough to accommodate 15 odd vehicles. So next time!

Excellent write up along with the pictures. Thanks for getting this one out, as it brings out more information, awareness and knowledge of these winged beauties. Great work by BNHS.

Thanks W.A.G.7 !
Google baba gives 098 20 779729 as the number for Mr Ovalekar. Please try that. If you face challenges with the number, do let me know. I can reach out to the volunteers from my org. to get more accurate contact details.
