Photo Friday - Oct. 28 - Delicate


Photo Friday submission for Oct. 28. This photo was shot in Southern Belize, west of Punta Gorda, near the Maya site Lubantum. We were at a butterfly farm where they breed blue morpho butterflies and others (can't remember the name of this one) for export to England. My friend's 4 year old daughter held perfecly still while butterflies landed on her and the red hibiscus. It was one of those magical experiences. Photographed with an old Olympus Comedia.

This reminds me of the time I was in our garden and a VERY BRIGHT BLUE butterfly landed on my hip and stayed for a while. I've never seen such a blue butterfly before or after.
