A tiny, beautiful thing.
My Modern Met:
Found primarily in Central America (Mexico through Panama), the glasswinged butterfly’s name in Spanish is Espejitos which translates as little mirrors. In certain lights, the translucent wing parts have a glossy, almost reflective quality to them that makes their Spanish name effectively accurate. Whether they’re seen as glass or mirrors, though, there’s something absolutely fascinating about the way these butterflies’ wings offer a surreal look at the environment around the insect. It’s like they’re tiny ornaments designed to draw the eye to the scenic appeal of nature.
Lots of these ladies on our sunflowers.
Some of the first fruits from our garden.
Greenville National Forest.
Not really. But camping in Greenville, TX at Megan’s parents’ place is still fun.
pie inspects the flowers we picked for mom. he was a botany major and never let’s us forget it.
we are roughing it in my parents driveway. Last nite was misery with high winds dropping the temps to around 30degrees. we were not prepared for that kind of cold, even sandwiched between two dogs.
Tonight we moved the bus into the woods behind their house, have Colorado grade sleeping bags (thanks pops) and more blankets (thanks moms). there is no wind and only supposed to get down to 40. wheeeee fun times….
front porch rainbow, that means there’s a giant unicorn nearby right..
