The last time I was at a Butterfly exhibit, it was on Victoria Island, Canada.  In my yard, I sometimes have Swallowtails, but no longer see the Monarchs that use to visit Sacramento when I was a kid.  I miss them!

Roy,

What a lovely photo.  I have been to the one outside of Denver somewhere with Ron's mom many moons ago.  It was a great way to experience butterflies. A

Roy Kelley,  back in the early 70's my family - husband, I, and 9 children read the allegorical novel, HOPE for the FLOWERS.  It was about two caterpillars, Yellow and Stripe, who went into the metamorphic process of death, transformation, and rebirth from caterpillar to butterfly.  Now your butterfly reminded me of the story;  just not sure if your butterfly is Stripe or Yellow - OR...one of their great-grandkids.

Enjoy the Wings of Fancy Exhibit. Sounds interesting.
