Reflection's Flora and Fauna
A collection of my photos of flora and fauna, and maybe now and then,
something else that catches my attention and just will not let go.
Maybe even with little verbage, which is pretty hard for this gal.

Butterfly House, Up Close And Personal

In mid September, Man, Son # 1, Wife of Son # 1, Twins L & M, and yours truly went to a local celebration.  They had tent full of butterflies, most, I believe were monarchs.  You could go in and observe close and personal and even try to "catch" one on a q-tip dipped in Gaterade (you know the disclaimer routine, name copyrighted by the company, etc. etc., etc.)

The girls went right in, I held back for a moment or two, but in the quest for photos, in I went.  Only downer, I could not stop taking photos, see:

OOOOOO. We nursed a monarch out at the farm. They are so beautiful!

How fun! I have never heard of using a Q-tip dipped in Gatorade to catch a butterfly. Try saying that five times fast "Q-tip dipped in Gatorade..."

Wow. This was a special series, and thanks.
