the admiral has landed

after a long journey through space the red admiral has landed at tranquility base (notice strong curvature of horizon on this small rocky planet). And this was only after fighting off several wasps to feed on a fallen apple. This was clearly one of those "don't mess with me" types of butterfly.

and much to our surprise the martins are raising another brood. They won't have much time to fatten up before they return to Africa.

This is one tough admiral!

We are expecting Hurricane Earl to hit our island by tomorrow evening-hopefully our butterflies and birds are bettening down the hatches! We are!
