I took these pictures while waiting for a few coconuts to be cut down for me. I’ve turned into an addict, really. I’m completely convinced it isn’t possible to drink too many coconuts in one day. (I’m working on coco number four as I type this.)
Julianne found this dead and partially torn Owl Butterfly just outside of the house. These beauties are in the genus Caligo, with an impressive wingspan of around 6 inches!
Owl butterflies prefer to fly at dusk as opposed to most butterflies which fly during the day. They feed on the oozing juice of rotting fruit, and their main predators are lizards. Sleeping on the job, Phil? Looks like something took a chunk out of the bottom half of this one before we found it.
Still beautiful, I think.
Keeping guard on the rooftop as we swim.
