Flying High

Lacewings, Sulfurs, Tigers, Swallowtails, Monarchs, Heliconias, Cabbage Whites, Longwings, Fritillaries, Admirals, Owls, Blue Morphos, and the list goes on...




Sharing a chosen few with you and those at 




Butterflies, unlike moths, are most active in the early morning hours.  Since I've been going to 


for nine years, the owners and employees let me in before they open to the public.  Each morning after my three mile walk along the beach, I head to the Farm for my cool down.
Wandering through the lush green paths, I watch at the butterflies stop to land on a flower or a leaf, then flutter away in search of more.







The Atlas Moth,however, became my favorite.
Can you see why?

These variations made for a colorful collage, JP. We have visited several butterfly gardens on various trips and it is always an exciting adventure, especially when they land on one's head or hand.
