Since these tiny delights need little room to spread their wings, Butterfly Haven is small but set up nicely. The gravel path led us through plants featured specifically with the butterflies in mind, along with a small, lovely water feature. But since pictures sometimes say much more than words I'll let Clyde's array of photos speak for themselves. While several of the butterflies posed for our convenience the one we really tried to capture was the Blue Morpho butterfly. The very first time we spotted a Blue Morpho in the wild was when we were driving through a national park. Having never before seen a blue butterfly at first it looked like a piece of blue paper flying high above our car. But a closer watch made us realize we now live with blue creatures flying overhead, to delight our senses.
So browse through our collection of photos and check out the link below to Butterfly Haven. The creatures, plants, and beauty of Panama still amaze us on a daily basis every where we go.....along the gringo trail.
