Flittin' Around

Every year, a local garden hosts a butterfly exhibit. Since Sophia loves to admire the little critters that are in her mural and hang on her mobile above her changing table, we thought this would be a perfect day out. Besides, being in a tropical dome is much more pleasant than chilly winds that were blowing outside.

The incredibly beautiful and blue Morpho Butterfly. The picture doesn't reflect it, but this butterfly was HUGE!

Colin had several butterflies land on his head while we were walking around. This one hung around long enough for us to show Sophia, who, as it turns out, is terrified of the winged creatures. I guess seeing them in a painting or on a mobile is different than one landing on your dad's head.

The aptly named Owl Butterfly...........

By this time, Sophia was hot and tired and sick of being chased around by butterflies. I think the adults had a much better time than the kids. The butterflies were so beautiful and such a great promise of spring.
