~butterfly~


One of my favorite things in the world are butterflies! This little beauty visited my garden Thursday afternoon, and I just so happened to have my camera with me (Score!!)My dream job would be as a lepidopterist, and study these amazing little creatures. I studied them briefly in school and was captivated by their charm and beauty. As well as the life cycle and migration patterns. It is truly astounding. I would love to visit one of their overwintering sites in Mexico (note to self, add that to my 100 things.. list)I am sure it would be nothing short of Amazing!! This is a cool website that is dedicated to education, conservation, and research of Monarch butterflies, check it out.
