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.
I was this close to dubbing this post “hooters” but I couldn’t bring myself to do it 🙂 This was the first time I have ever witnessed an owl butterfly with it’s wings open. Who knew the little hoots had such colorful upper wings!
The Superstition Mountain Museum has several old mining buildings, mining equipment, signs that say watch out for snakes and the chapel here known as the Elvis Chapel because he once filmed a movie here.
I’ve used both but the real name of the mountains are the Superstition Mountains. I wasn’t the least bit superstitious as I traipsed around the area but I don’t think I would do it today – Friday the 13th.
I’m not totally back yet but I wanted to pop in and share this little photo my sister in law took of me with my new friend whom I named Morty. Morty the Blue Morpho Butterfly. We hung out for awhile together and then he had to flutter off. One Christmas decoration remains outside in the snow and cold and frankly because of the snow and cold it is going to stay out there for awhile! Most of the decorations inside are back in storage except for the tree. Half of the ornaments on it have been packed up and I just look at the rest and give a big sigh…
I probably won’t be back up to full blogging speed until next week when I will tell you where Morty and I were and more 😉
This photo was taken looking away from the Marshall Point Lighthouse. I don’t know if those houses that you can just see snuggled in the trees were private homes or were connected with the lighthouse but regardless, can you imagine having all of this as your everyday view?
