I’m spending the day with my better half and a few thousand Monarch butterflies (Danaus plexippus) overwintering here along the California coast! It’s amazing that these clusters are just an hour away from the bustling city of San Francisco. Every year in the fall and winter, Monarchs west of the Rockies migrate hundreds of miles to the coast in search of overwintering grounds free of frost and freezing temperatures. For many coastal Californians, October- March are some of the best months to observe Monarch butterflies as they fly to and from their overwintering grounds. During this time, the butterflies are relatively inactive, only flying during warm weather. East of the Rocky Mountains, most Monarchs fly south to find refuge in the high elevation pine forests of central Mexico. Great places to see overwintering monarchs include Natural Bridges, Pacific Grove, and Pismo Beach to name a few. #naturalwonder #monarchbutterfly #danausplexippus #monarch #lepidoptera

The things evolution has come up with will never cease to amaze me #conservethewonder

3 years ago today my 1st exhibition of knitted moths opened at @prickyourfinger It seems slightly ridiculous that I’m still making them, but it turns out moths are the best!

I've just started playing @questagame. I submitted this image and all up was awarded over 1700 points. I did get the ID correct but apparently this image shows the identifying features of a male in this species, Amata chromatica, and there weren't any images of this species in the ALA (Atlas of Living Australia) database. Who thought my images could actually be helpful to science! 😊

So I guess I'll be doing a throwback Thursday today, back to this perfect scene of a large white butterfly in St Ives

Foam spurting, squeaking moths are a thing at Finca las piedras. If a predator ignores the warning coloration that closely resembles other noxious species, it could be in for a surprise!

Butterflies in gardens
The Common Dotted Border butterfly is a medium sized lepidopteran. The black margin at the end of its fore and rear wings is the dinstinguishing factor between the sexes. It is widespread in equatorial Africa. Its habitat ranges from rainforests to savanna zones, anywhere mistletoe is. Mistletoe species form the the basic feed for them in caterpillar stage.

Polilla búho 🦉 (Polythysana rubrescens). Especie nativa de Chile, que puede encontrarse entre la VIII y la X región.

Tienen un comportamiento singular, ya que las hembras son nocturnas y las atrae la luz, mientras que los machos son diurnos y se orientan a través del olfato.

Para aparearse, los machos olfatean a hembras posadas durante las primeras horas del día. La cópula puede durar 24 horas (😱), luego de la que el macho muere extenuado, con sus alas descamadas.

Conocer para conservar! 😍

We decided to make a smaller art piece for the Christmas season and offer this stunning art piece at a special price. The frame is 12"x16" in dimension. The background is made with hand made paper.

The art piece is composed of 6 blue morphos (3 Morpho didius + 3 Morpho menelaus) from the jungles of Peru and Guyana. The orange tipped butterflies ate called Heboemia leucippe from Ceram, Indonesia. And finally there is one Norepa chromus from Bolivia.
The price for this piece is $1000.

We will be showcasing at the @spruce_meadows and bringing it to @fortmcmurray Christmas market.

Sea glass butterfly. This was a customer commission and I’m really pleased with how it turned out. Hoping to do another in the future, although my daughter wants one for her room first. Please pop over to my shop to see my other items or to chat to me about my work. #beachlover #beachfinds #seaglass #seaglassart #fifeseaglass #seaglassartist #butterfly #butterflypicture #lepidoptera #madeinscotland #madeintheuk #madeinfife #insectslovers #insects
