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!

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 […]

Snakes, mystery caterpillars and other exciting finds

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 […]
