A few weeks ago I had the chance to go to Butterfly World, down island by Coombs. It was truly magical. I hadn't been there since I was in highschool, and it was the perfect rainy day adventure! I went with Daniel's mom -- Judy-- and youngest sister -- Kristianna--, and two of his mom's clients. Judy works with elderly men and women doing regular homecare, but she also does fun things with them like picnics, coffee dates, and, of course, Butterfly World trips!
It was a perfect opportunity to snap a few photos with our new 60mm lense.

This was one of my first photos. It was so warm and humid inside the building that my camera immediately fogged up... and stayed that way for about 20 minutes!

What can I say, I love water droplet photos!

I got so nostalgic when I saw these flowers growing. I don't know the name of them, but they are the same flowers that grow all along the roadsides in Kenya. The ones in Butterfly World were all a magenta pink color, but in Kenya they ranged in color from white to pinks to deep purple. It was such an unexpected gift to see these flowers.

Even though his heat lamp made for terrible lighting, I had to snap a picture of this big fella. The poor guy was trying to push and pull his way out of his box, but eventually wedged his shell between the two boards and just ended up hanging there for a little while until he fell down on his back. Not the most graceful position for a tortoise, let me assure you!
