Mermaid Butterfly House, A Place of Beauty and Learning
Says Bill, "I netted one of these yesterday at my sister’s house in Pacific Palisades, a giant swallowtail, a relatively rare butterfly in our area. This is the third or fourth one I’ve seen in my life. We have it now in a butterfly house hoping it’s a gravid female that will lay eggs. She (or he) was quite docile and allowed me to pose them as they sat calmly on this plant for a 15-minute photo shoot. I am in love. :—) "
