I am planing on doing a article about butterfly farms, have been invited to take pictures in the breeding section of one of the ones here in Florida(they can only ship a few kinds out of state but it is a great place to see how it is done.)
I found a site that list all the butterfly gardens in the different states thought y'all might be interested in it
http://www.butterfly-houses.com/

Do y'all have web sites for where to get plants for butterflies and maybe farms in your state? Please let me know if you do.

That is strange. Try the link again and click over on the left side of the screen and see if you can open one of the links there. The main pages do have a black background, maybe it isn't loading because he is working on it? It opens for me now.

I still can not see the writing on the first page but I could go to the links and the butterflies, the links gave me a couple of new sites.

Thank you

Wren, it's probably too late for this to do you any good, but sometimes when I can't see the text on a webpage, I'll drag my mouse over it, as if I were highlighting it -- that makes the text a different color and I can see it. Have you tried that?
