I live in St. Louis, Missouri. Welcome to my city!

Ed has been volunteering at The Butterfly House (click above) and decided to take her posse for a Saturday afternoon adventure. It's been a little rainy/gloomy/humid lately, causing her pictures to look as though they were taken in a steam bath. They actually were taken in a steam bath, but this bath belonged to butterflies!

Over 1,000 blue Morpho butterflies have been added to the collection this month. Their color, as evidence above, is magnificent! Because there are so many of them, it was a little difficult to catch them while at rest. They don't rest. They are so excited to be here, they cannot control their erratic and mesmerizing dance. Here are a few more pics of this beautiful creature.

The House also has interactive exhibits like this! Ewwwwwwwwwww! Those suckers are huge!

Feel free to pay a visit to The Butterfly House! Have a sensational Sunday!
