Blue Morpho


There is a large butterfly house, something like a three-story greenhouse, in a park in the nether suburbs. I had never been there. We decided to take Madeleine for a visit on Sunday.

I've visited butterfly enclosures before in the US and particularly in Costa Rica but never before have I seen such a density of the winged bugs. It was a warm, sunny day and they were very active. This blue morpho took a break on the reinforced glass wall.

This sounds a lot like our Butterfly World in Scottsdale. It opened about 3 years ago and is so full of butterflies it amazes me every time I go.
