My Blue Butterfly Tree

Welcome to Blue Monday.Sally is the host
for this event.http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/
A time to visit blogs and
make more new friends.


My post today is a post from a friend.She had been on a field trip with her child's classroom to some forest in or around Atlanta I asked her to look for blue butterflies and this is what
she found. HAVE YOU EVER SEEN ANYTHING AS PRETTY....I HOPE YOU WILL ENJOY AS MUCH AS I HAVE..



Oh there is no words to express this very special meeting that took place. The Forrest was most honored to witness such an impressive moment.

And honestly, so am I! This is, of course, the blue episode after that first ladybird incredible gathering. I don’t remember ever seeing such butterflies (the only blue butterflies I caught when I was a child were small and had some dots on) and I hope not to catch the Mariah-la-butterfly-mania, but I do declare this scene to be one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen! Those colors are fairytale-ish, aren’t they?

this Tree is not from your friend this is from Kelvin Hudson he click the picture in San Francisco in the Golden gate park this was a special work for Hewlett- packard and i can say this because i have the magazine from outdoor photographer octuber 2009 and at the end this picture figure with the information and all. the only way that she could click this picture is just if she was with Kelvin and even than you never have two the same pictures sorry.

I have the same magazine and yep it was taken here in San Francisco Golden Gate Park. They are Blue Morpho's found only in the American tropics Kelvin Hudson, he said the following:

"We hired a butterfly wrangler / breeder ( Lepidoptera) who with the help of a glue gun and my direction achieved this image. No cruelty involved as they were resting!"
I think the only thing your friend clicked was the search button on google or the scan button.
