Butterflies ID-ed

Me - Mariposario's guest blogger :)Confession -  I  don’t consider myself a science person.  I am wildly enamored with the wildlife here and I’m known at the bed & breakfast for getting really excited about every new little creature we find.  But I don’t read science journals. I’m just starting to occasionally read other butterfly blogs and I took the bare minimum amount of science classes in college to graduate. (Even then, I skipped the maximum amount of days allowed before my grade would start to be docked for absences)

I must also admit to myself though, that loving wildlife and loving photography is slowly making me more sciencey. Take today for example… I just spent the entire afternoon flipping through butterfly books, ID-ing species and then double verifying them online. Where did that come from?!  Answer: Me loving taking pictures and me living at a butterfly garden has equated to exactly 6,238 butterfly pictures. glassy winged
