I realize that I have already made three (?) entries in my blog thus far, but it is the weekend and I think you should be relaxing at your computer and just enjoying some of the hundreds of photos I took yesterday!
The following are photos I took at the butterfly conservatory yesterday with the Panasonic camera I recently purchased. Some of them were good enough that I just wanted to share them.
The first photo is a butterfly that has emerged from its chrysalis. As I was taking this photo, a woman called her friend over/ to see the gorgeous butterfly that was just born….Please excuse any glare….this photo was taken through glass. The butterflies emerge and then must find their way through holes drilled in the glass (probably plexiglass) to escape into the green world of the conservatory. Note to self: why did I not photograph the “escape holes”?
Oh glory….what is the plural of chrysalis? I certainly don’t think I know! Well, this is where the multiple chrysalises (?) hang from a board……As you can observe, many of the butterflies have emerged and are sitting on their empty chrysalis…..
Mmmmm…this crew is enjoying orange slices and brown bananas! The bananas do seem to be the favorite du jour!
