Butterfly and Banana
I've really been looking forward to butterfly season this year. For Christmas my brother gave me a wonderful little butterfly book, A World of Butterflies by Brian Cassie with photographs by Kjell Sandved. Each two-page opening is dedicated to a particular butterfly with the name and description on the left page and a gorgeous photgraph on the right-hand page. I am now anxious for someone to offer me a free trip trip to Brazil so that I can witness a morpho portis butterfly in flight. It just won't happen for me here in West Virginia.
On the strong chance that I don't make it to Brazil for a Morpho visit, I am very satisfied with the swallowtails and monarchs that do pass through my yard.
