Doris Longwing / Laparus doris viridis

One of the beautiful tropical butterflies that were on display in the ENMAX Conservatory at the Calgary Zoo. Taken on August 23rd. Their season came to an end ealier in October, but they will be back next spring. I love the deep orange pattern on the hind wings.


Well, so much for getting my front door replaced today! I was up at some unearthly hour because I hadn't heard back about what time they might arrive. Last night, I removed all things from nearby walls and shelves and even made sure I caught up with the dishes and cleaned the sink, lol. Then around 9:45 a.m. I think, I get a knock on the front door and the guy explains that the doors hadn't yet been delivered (some misunderstanding) and so it would be next Monday (a whole week) when they would be coming. If they happen to finish something else early before that and notice that I am home, they will stop by and ask if they can do it then instead. Can't say I was exactly impressed. Decided to grab my camera and try a few macros in my kitchen. OK, I'll admit it, I'm waiting to hear the final verdict on the Death of Michael Jackson manslaughter case : )
