I’m not sure, but I think this may have been the first time I’d seen this particular species of tropical butterfly in the ENMAX Conservatory at the Calgary Zoo. Not the easiest to photograph, either, but I managed to get just a quick shot, so I was happy. Taken on September 20th.
I think I am going to have to limit my time on the computer the next few days at least, as both arms are extremely painful, mainly from too much mouse clicking. Bad timing, as I still have a whole pile of Christmas letters to type for overseas, not to mention that I have to clear and vacuum at least part of my basement so that the furnace guy doesn’t choke on the dust when he comes to take a look this week and give me an estimate for a new furnace and water heater. By now, all those dust bunnies will have grown into adult dust rabbits – and, boy, how fast they breed! Also, I came out in a crummy cold yesterday – and I never get colds. I wonder if I caught something when I was at the Health Centre the other day, getting routine blood tests done. They always say that if you want to catch something, go to a hospital, ha.
