Butterflies ID-ed

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 […]

Exciting caterpillars of every color, stripe, shape and size!

Lots happening in the caterpillar lab the last couple weeks!     Found a bunch of these beautiful black & white caterpillars on a Cecropia tree right off of our balcony. We rescued all of them (as they would have almost surely become wren food otherwise) and have had fun watching them grow up! I’ve gotten […]

Catching up after the World Cup!

Ok, that’s it. I need to do more frequent blog posts. Initially my goal was to post one a week. The problem is by the time the week is over I’m overwhelmed by all the possible things I could write about and I put off writing anything!  So this week I’m gonna try for a […]

Our new Lab, with a side of White Face West Side Story

Oh wow has it been a full couple weeks! Here’s a few of the things happening these days!                The butterfly lab is getting overhauled! Walls are getting knocked down, cement’s getting mixed on the floor, cinder blocks laid… while I stand in the middle of it all changing out grass for the morpho’s and […]

Return of the ants

.  The leaf cutter ants re-invaded. Turns out one foot of the table hadn’t been put into a wide enough oil container, allowing these persistent pillagers to cross the chasm, scale the table, and plunder again. So with almost perfectly dejavu detail we re-enacted the last night’s drama (with the one notable exception that this […]

Coconut milk!

Since moving to Montezuma, Costa Rica in 2005 I have been exposed to a number of new healthy alternatives to cows milk, sugar and processed foods in general. With an abundance of fresh fruit and veggies year round it is very easy to live and eat healthy. One of the many alternatives to cows milk […]
