To fill in time waiting on results we thought we would go to the Butterfly House at the Dunedin Museum, something to distract the mind and lighten the heart and it did....

This photo is a little blurry but I love the markings on the underside of the wings, I think it is an Owl butterfly from Central South America.

There was a carved rock..another blurry photo!
Fish in the pool at the foot of the waterfall
At ground level there was a glass fronted hatchery full of chrysalises, some of them very intricately decorated, however couldn't take a photo because of the reflection from the glass.
Here are some pics from the brochure...
There were quite a few of these beauties fluttering by but proved very elusive and camera shy, they were gorgeous and knowing my penchant for blue they were my favourites!.
"In every walk with nature,
one receives far more than he seeks!"
Have a good week hope it flutters by full of happy days.....x
