Butterfly

Milena caught a Satyr or a Zephyr butterfly this morning with her net.  It wouldn’t fly away. It happily of hung out on her hand for the longest time. 🙂 She now interested in watching butterflies. Perfect timing. I am expecting to get a kit of Painted lady caterpillars in the next few weeks from a friend.

We aren’t sure which butterfly it was.The underside was lighter than the photo shows. These two butterflies are often confused. We think it is a Satyr as it’s underside and top were lighter in colour than the Zephyr. The size of both is very similar too…Both Satyr and Zephyr butterflies live in similar regions as well.

Another great learning moment.
