Today we had the pleasure of visiting the Butterfly Farm in St Martin.
The visits starts out with a guided and super entertaining tour. I would consider this tour is suitable for all ages. Not much walking at all, plenty of benches, water and beer for 2$. I loved our guide, he was funny and quite charming, sorry husband.
K so quickly some of my favourite highlights.
Today’s favourite fact: butterflies have no mouths. They drink through a “straw”.
If you look closely at this Blue Morpho (I think I got that right) if you look closely you can see her straw here. Apparently the fermented fruit is like and open bar for the Butterfly, who knew butterflies were drinkers?! When she’s done she coils up the straw. We followed the Blue Morpho about in hopes it would land on us but they were all a flutter and quite frisky today.
The Owl Butterfly: This little guy disguises himself as a predator (on the right).
And so we had a lovely morning visit puttering about, we finished with a lazy beach afternoon in Grand Case.
How was everyone else’s day?
