Leaves of Snow

I took this picture yesterday on my morning walk.
This is a pile of leaves with a little bit of snow mixed in.
The snow plows plowed up the leaves along with the snow.
Since this picture it has snowed again.
We were supposed to get a dusting.
Instead we got this.

Owl Butterfly

Another butterfly from the Butterfly Farm. This one is a bit unusual and very interesting.
I don't remember the real name of it but it is also called the Owl Butterfly and its easy to see where it got that name. The man here is holding up the wings of one that has died. Isn't that cool how you can see an owl face! You might want to click on it to see it better.This next picture is the caterpillar that turns into the Owl Butterfly.This little girl walked around with the butterfly on this piece of fruit so we could all get a good picture.This last picture is what it looks like in flight with the beautiful blue on the inside of their wings. We were told that it is very hard to get a picture with their blue wings showing because when they land they close them. I felt lucky to have gotten this picture! Maybe that was part of my good luck for having a butterfly land on me. :-)

More butterflies

Some more butterflies from The Butterfly Farm. They say if one lands on you, you'll have 24 hours of good luck. I had three of them land on me. One on my back and two on my arm.
Here's the two that landed on my arm. They tickled me as they walked around. :-)

Butterflies

While at St. Maartens we visited The Butterfly Farm. It was small but had lots of butterflies and it was really cool to just walk around seeing all the different kinds.
Here are two of them. I don't know the names of these but they sure are pretty.
