A Trip to the Zoo’s Butterfly House

Recently (okay, in August… 😉 ) , a friend invited my girls and I to meet her and her children at the zoo for some nature study and friend time.  We stopped in the Butterfly House for a few minutes. Here are some butterflies I managed to get photos of:St. Louis Zoo 2013 Butterfly 1

St. Louis Zoo 2013 Great Morpho Butterfly

This last one is a Great Morpho Butterfly. They are large and a brillant, beautiful blue. This picture washes him out terribly bad – the sun was shining on him. We only know about him because we read about them in Jack’s Insects, a delightful living book about insects. You can get the book here.
