September 13th I visited Nevada Bugs & Butterflies. I was really excited that they had many monarchs in their hoop house. Their hoop house is a garden covered by half circle pipes and then draped by netting. The netting keep the butterflies inside the garden.
I am going to share images, videos and galleries below. It's almost to much information to describe everything that was going on in the butterfly hoop house. But I will expand on some of the images where I can.
I'll go into some additional detail about my visit to Nevada Bugs & Butterflies now.
In the video below I was able to use the SLO-MO on my new iPhone 5s to capture a monarch nectaring on a flower. The normally rapid wing flapping is slow enough to enjoy at the slower speed of the recording. Enjoy!
In the video below you will see a butterfly in the moments after it emerges from a chrysalis.
I was a bit concerned when I saw the butterfly fall from the feeder to the table below.
A new addition at Nevada Bugs & Butterflies is a pair of tortoises. Desert tortoises of course.
