Wildlife Wednesday – Butterfly Gardens


Vietnam – Saigon Hoi Hoa Xuan, originally uploaded by anthonli.

At the Flower Festival in Saigon, there is an enclosure erected for butterfly displays. It is the saddest display I see at the festival. All the butterflies were dehydrated and most were mutilated, with missing legs and broken wings. In the middle of the day, one staff actually went in to pick up all the dead moths and butterflies and jot in his catalog. Probably so that they can replace it later in the day.
So much so that I did not feel like taking a picture inside that enclosure.
Instead, I spend my time chasing the bees and butterflies flitting around out in the open. Like this critter here, taking a rest on a flower bud.
