In Costa Rica we visited a butterfly garden. Costa Rica has more than 1200 different species of butterflies, which you see in abundance. The butterfly garden was a chance to see a great variety in one place. We started with a little lesson on insects of Costa Rica, a subject that I expected to be rather dull, however this young woman presenter was not only a great, very knowledgeable speaker, but was hilariously funny!
After the entertaining lesson, we walked through the garden and hundreds of butterflies flitted around us—enchanting!
This is a blue morpho—quite large
I am impatient now. I know the green and the flowers and our northern birds are coming. A few butterflies too, I hope...
