Butterflies!

One of Houston's treasures is the Butterfly Center at the Museum of Natural Science. It is a permanent exhibit, and it proved to be a wonderful place to spend part of a rainy afternoon last week.


How many butterflies can you spot on this branch?....


There must be about 50-60 varieties of butterflies on display at the Center, just fluttering and lighting on plants all around you.


This one was my favorite. The underside of the wings (shown here) are brown and moth-like, but the topside of the wings (which are hidden in this picture) are a wonderfully rich cerulean shade of blue!


I highly recommend it!
