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:
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.
