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 […]

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 […]

Midnight in the garden of Mariposas

 8:45pm.  I’m worried about my black & yellow checkered checkered caterpillar. He’s stopped eating and keeps roaming restlessly around the box rejecting his host plant bottle or on any other  twig, leaf or perch I try to offer him (I think he’s looking for a place to pupate, but I really don’t know). I put […]

Hand raising mystery caterpillars

As I said in my intro blog, my passions are latin dancing, photography, Spanish and whatever happens to have currently sparked my excitement down here. Right now it’s raising caterpillars. One who makes the butterfly garden its home is the battus. We have caterpillars in the butterfly garden of course, that live there happily, eventually […]

Montezuma Garden’s blog… back from a 2 year sabatical!

Hi! This is Pauline.  I am the fiance of one of the brother’s who owns the family business, Montezuma Gardens.  I   actually met Josh as a guest here at the bed and breakfast 6 years ago.  But after years of long distance dating between Montana and Costa Rica, I’m no longer here staying as a […]

Jungle Living

I have to constantly pinch myself while living here in Costa Rica. Am I really here? Is this really happening? It is, and I love it. Everything is surreal and you are constantly in perpetual motion. As soon as one project finishes the next appears.  It keeps you on your toes and it keeps you […]

Diaethria Marchalii

This beautiful butterfly is most commonly encountered near human habitations, where it is a familiar sight to see individuals perched head down on buildings. Its association with human habitation is most likely due to the fact the host plant is a common secondary-succession tree species with a very wide distribution in Costa Rica. Although the butterfly […]

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 […]
