First Day Butterflies…& Birds!
After breakfast, our first stop was The Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservancy.
The beautiful blues that were difficult to snap.
I had a hitchhiker for most of my visit…a butterfly that attached itself to my shirt until we exited.
DH’s head was a favorite for an old blue with tattered wings.
& “blue” birds, quail… (I spent all afternoon one day trying to find the names of these lovelies. Cornell Ornithology – you failed me for the first time ever!)
A Honey Creeper of some sort, I’m certain.
Baby Quail with mommy
Japanese Quail, I think
A Parrot Finch with a blue-cheeked feathered friend
Could not identify these gorgeous, brilliant two!
What would a visit to south Florida be without seeing a Flamingo or two?
