Week 11:: Orange

October 10, 2011

The preschooler and I went on another adventure recently.  A local farm has a little butterfly villa set-up to teach kids in a hands-on way about butterflies.   Beautiful flowers, lots of eggs, caterpillars, and butterflies flying around us.  It was beautiful and amazing.  I’ve been to the Butterfly House in St. Louis a couple of times, but have never had someone available to teach us so much about butterflies.  I so appreciated the owner teaching and showing the kids where to find the eggs, or pointing to a baby caterpillar – smaller than 1/4 inch in length – and tell me how old it was, or show us a caterpillar going into it’s J formation, and so much more.

This week’s photography challenge theme is ORANGE, and my life has been surrounded by orange this week … sweet potato and black bean burritos, pumpkins at the pumpkin patch, candy corn trail mix and monarch butterflies.  See all the orange submissions here.
