Flit Like a Butterfly / Revolotea Como una Mariposa

La versión español está después de la versión inglés.

I have so many butterflies to share from the Butterfly Park in Benalmádena (the city just east of us) that I’m not going to say much today. (You’re welcome.) It wasn’t easy getting the perfect shot. They’re so flitty. Some settled down. Some did not. Others I caught while they were just emerging from the chrysalis.

Tengo tantas mariposas para compartir del Mariposario de Benalmádena (la ciudad al este de nosotros) que hoy no voy a decir mucho. (De nada.) No fue fácil hacer la foto perfecta. Las mariposas tan revoloteando. Algunos se establecieron. Algunos no lo hicieron. Otros los fotografié a medida que emergían de la crisálida.

      This place is simply amazing. I’ll still have more to share. It’s not just butterflies. It’s so surprising when you step inside.

    1. Jim:
      I think you and Ron would fall in love with this place … and then right across the magnificent stupa!

    1. David:
      I would spend much more time in there if I didn’t get so overheated. Could strip down to shorts inside!

  1. Thanks for sharing these beautiful photos with us. We just love that you were able to get very close up shots and it must of took some time to get them right. Just the details on the different coloring is just gorgeous. We hope you have a wonderful rest of your day.

    1. World of Animals:
      Thanks for stopping by. I’ve got photos of the flowers and wildlife still to come. Birds… and a rescued wallaby!

    1. Debra:
      The variety is amazing. There’s one kind I that wasn’t there this some that looks like the wings are made of stained glass! And they’re not shipped in. They all come to live right before your eyes.

  2. No such thing as too many butterflies! I am fortunate that many of the ones you showed are native to Belize, so I have the pleasure of seeing them fairly often. Never get tired of them.

  3. So purty.
    We’ve been to a few Butterfly Gardens or Houses or whatever you call them,and it’s very cool to see so many in just one spot.
    Your pictures reminded me of that. Thanks.

      I love these places and, of all I’ve seen so far, this one is my favorite. If I didn’t get so damned hot, I’d spend hours inside.

  4. Lovely flutterby’s. Wait, that apostrophe doesn’t seem right. But neither does “flutterbies.” Or “flutterbyes.” Oh, now I have to deal with THIS all day.

    1. Walt the Fourth:
      I hope you got over your flutterbys… no apostrophe. (It’s scary how similar you and I are, though. I always first think flutterby… and I stew about apostrophes.)

    1. Kirk:
      In other butterfly exhibits I’ve been to, most of the butterflies are shipped in with a few chrysalises (chrysalides) on display. This place “grows” all their own! I’ll soon share a picture of the building exterior. It’s a beautiful building, but they didn’t give much thought to exterior photos when they posted signs and other “crap.”
