December 1st Show at the Butterfly House

Hours: 10:00am – 4:00pm
Last Friday I visited one of my favorite places, the Sophia M. Sachs Butterfly House. Once there I met with the organizer of the December 1st Gems and Jewels Trunk Show which I’ll be participating in. I then braved the humidity to see what new butterflies I could find.
The Paper Kites were active as always, but I was pleasantly surprised to find a few new butterfly species that I hadn’t seen, or wasn’t able to capture on camera before, including the orange spotted one above (of which I haven’t been able to identify yet).
The two above were also new finds for me, The Great Mormon on the left, and the Banded Purple Wing on the right. On my way home, while at a stop sign, I quickly caught a photo of the evening’s sunset, which you can download as a free wallpaper from my Facebook page, here.
