Butterflies in the Virgin Islands! (Part 2)

Filed under: Butterflies — Butterflygirl @ 6:44 pm

One day while at St. Thomas we visited the The Butterfly Farm. They have a large, enclosed meshed structure with many different species of butterflies from around the world as well as an outside butterfly garden to help attract native butterflies to the area.

Front of building:

Outside gardens to the left and right of the building:

You can also see in the picture above, in the background, is the enclosure where they keep their non-native butterfly species.

The pictures of the Gulf Fritillary I posted last time (Butterflies in the Virgin Islands! (Part 1)) were taken here also.

Next week, I’ll post some pictures of caterpillars and host plants that were at The Butterfly Farm. When we were visiting we met Carmen, who works there, and was very patient with me and with all the questions I asked about the host plants they had!

I took lots of pictures of the plants but unfortunately I don’t remember what some of them are now – hopefully she will be patient with me once again and stop by and ID them for me!
