Butterflies in Fort Myers

Owners Sam and Ann Bumgarner stopped at the Butterfly Estates in Fort Myers before attending the Fort Myers annual Art Festival held Sunday the 8th, in downtown Fort Myers.

Sam and Ann are avid naturalists, having an extensive shell collection and traveling the country to such places as Portal Arizona, the Salton Sea and STA #5 in Florida to add to their sizable birding list.

Their new hobby is “butterflies”. The estates offers a wonderful place to learn, and as they left, the docent presented them with several deceased specimens to add to their collection.

If you are interested in observing these wonderful creatures, Ocean’s Reach is the perfect place to be. We have created a paradise of lush colorful plantings and flowering shrubs that attract butterflies all year.
