I’ve had a pretty complicated couple weeks. I’m sorry I haven’t been reading or responding much.
I did go to a butterfly conservatory last weekend, which was a great pleasure. The conservatory is a large glass dome with tropical plants throughout the interior. Once you’re inside, there are a dozen or more species of butterflies floating around. Hundreds of them fill the interior.
I’ll shake off my blogging dry spell… and I’ll avoid a cheesy butterfly metaphor here 😉
The chrysalii hang in a plexiglass enclosure. Holes cut in the window let the butterflies exit once they have emerged and dried off.
