Very Enjoyable Photos . . .

This reminds me that years ago during a cruise of the Southern Caribbean, we went to a butterfly farm, on I think, St Marrten.

One of the things that I most recall, was that, by far the most popular butterfly they sold was the Monarch and that since they fed only on Milkweed, it was a major expense for them.  It would grow on the island but not well.  That they spent a great deal of effort on making sure their Monarch butterflies got enough to eat.

We North Americans in the tour were surprised that something that is such a common, almost unnoticeable, part of our summers could seem so . . . exotic, to others.

Your photos brought back a most pleasurable time of my life to me.  Thanks.
