Butterfly Wings I–Zebra Longwing

This past weekend I went to the Butterfly Pavilion at the Albuquerque Biopark to photograph butterflies. I became fascinated with watching the butterflies, and before I knew it more than three hours had gone by. In the next week or so I will be posting photos from the Butterfly Pavilion. I loved the Zebra Longwings (Heliconius charitonius).

Mammals on Monday

I spotted a very healthy coyote yesterday morning as I was driving down Rio Grande Boulevard. He had just missed an attempt at catching a lovely male pheasant. By the time I was able to bring my vehicle to a stop he was already trotting away. He was not very concerned about having his photograph taken.
