Desert Beauty – High Eleven

I don’t know what type of cactus this is but if you know please let me know.  This cactus was one of many in the private garden of an RV park in Congress, Arizona.  It shared space with Methuselah the oldest known cactus in Arizona.  More about that old boy in this post.

(Decided to post some things I had in queue that I had forgotten about in the pile of other photos and posts.  It’s going to be this and that for a few days until I get another theme going)

State Butterfly of Arizona

The Two-Tailed Swallowtail.  I get down right giddy when I come across a species I’ve never seen before and this was one of those moments.  Such a beautiful creature.

Hoot

The Owl Butterfly (Caligo eurilochus) is a bit of a night owl (pun not entirely intended) in the butterfly world as they are nocturnal which may be why they are usually pretty easy to photograph. They stay very low key when all of the visitors are around.

The White Morpho

When I first entered the beautiful (and quite humid) area where all of the butterflies and moths were, my eyes were drawn to these butterflies that looked like pieces of white tissue paper fluttering in the air.
