Butterfly Jungle, part two







 I thought I'd share some for photos from my trip to the Butterfly Jungle.  I had a great time.  I'm re-sharing the bottom photo because the Common Blue Morpho really captivated me.  Looking at the two sides of this butterfly's wings, you might not think they were on the same insect.

Butterfly Jungle, part one









Today, I went to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park in Escondido.  It's a lot closer than the San Diego Zoo, but I had to pay $9.00 for parking, and parking at the Zoo is free, so it's almost a wash; distance vs. convenience.  I went expressly to see the Butterfly Jungle, it's only open for four weeks, and since today was going to be in the 70's, and the rest of the week will be in the 80-90 degree range, today was the day.

I waited in line for an hour, the line was well shaded and there were other people to chat with, so the wait was fine.  Once inside, you could stay as long as you wanted.  The space was tiny so they regulated the number of humans very well.  It as so much fun!  Other places across the country have Butterfly exhibits; I highly recommend going if you have a chance.

There will be more photos, soon.

Zoo





I love going to the San Diego Zoo.  It's been over a year since I made the 65 mile drive and had some non-domesticated animal time.  These were taken yesterday, the bottom photo is a Tasmania Devil.  I was lucky enough to walk by when he was active.

Many things had changed in a year, I felt as if I was a new visitor, instead of a regular.  I'm really going to try to make it at least once a month.

Housemates



These are Frisco an 8-year-old American Cocker and Ben a 2-year-old terrier mix.  They are my housemates, now.  They keep me company and keep me busy meeting their demands.  Walks, Treats, Food!

Magnolia Seeds


We don't have a lot of Fall foliage, here in SoCal, but I always love seeing the Magnolia seeds in the Autumn.
