common-morpho-image.jpgMy wife and I had a friend out to visit a few weekends ago. We like to take our guests someplace interesting (Casa Bonita, been there done that), so we hit up the butterfly pavilion.

I have to admit, I was impressed, and a bit grossed out. It’s not just nice pretty butterflies, it’s creepy crawlies, with 100’s or thousands of legs.

They’ve got three types of cockroach, and for once I’m glad the US is the loser in the “mine’s bigger” category.

The stick bugs were certainly cool, and the millipedes rawked.

And then we entered butterfly land… Woah!

Thousands (i’m guessing) of butterflies just flapping this way and that, it was quite impressive (I know I used that adjective already), they were everywhere.

If you’re looking for something to do on a lazy weekend, hop over, it’s worth the 8 bucks.
