Butterfly World

I had a great time here: I think if I lived in Boca I’d be here every week. One of the largest butterfly enclosures in the US, and also birdies and a lovely landscaped garden.

Some photos.

Most of the sky flowers here aren’t native to Florida and I can’t ID what species they are.  Sorry. But they sure are lovely.

OK, this one I actually do know—it’s a Blue Morpho from Central America. You can’t see the stunning blue color when the wings are folded up.

This caterpillar was outside the enclosure, so it’s a Florida native

The Bug Zoo. Most visitors just sort of hurried through this part, but I like bugs.  🙂   This is a Goliath Bird-Eating Tarantula.
